Gold Coast, Australia
My choice of subjects for painting is varied as I explore my creative expression and make use of colour and tonal values.
Heather has always had a love and an appreciation for art, however her career took her in another direction for many years and it wasn’t until her children were at school that she began to paint.
Her art knowledge has been gained from attending both workshops and regular classes from several teachers. Each teacher has gave her further insights into art and influenced her in varied styles and mediums. Heather believes this method of learning has given her confidence in approaching her artwork with a creative open mind, letting go of the fear of making mistakes.
Art is Heather’s passion, she has an enthusiasm for many styles of art and uses oils, acrylic, watercolours and mixed media. Her paintings range from realism to contemporary and impressionism, from still life to landscapes and portraits.
Heather likes to use a palette ranging from bright intense to softer paler colours. She feels this is a natural process of her ongoing art journey, reflecting her mood and emotions of the present moment.
The subjects Heather choose help her explore her creative artistic expression, making use of colours, shapes, tonal values, line and textures in an attempt to produce a pleasing composition. When working on an painting she tries to capture its essence to give it a quality of life to transport the viewer into the subject.
