Art is a whisper. An essence. A glimpse of our soul. It is a reflection of our connection to the universe & far off dreams that are so familiar. It is a lasso that is cast out into the stars catching distant memories and bringing them back to earth. These images are reminders of the magic that surrounds us.

We'Moon is a long running publication that is a powerful symbol of women's creativity, strength and deep wisdom. Heather had this to say about it...
"We’Moons 2019 theme set my imagination soaring and transported me back to a very potent life experience. Like everything I paint, Gaia Sagrada is a story on canvas. In 2015 I had the opportunity to participate in a traditional sweat ceremony in Ecuador lead by native shamans. It was, hands down one of the most challenging things I had ever done. I held my own for most of it, but during round three I had to retrieve to the fresh air. I crawled out on my hands and knees in a state of despair. I felt the deep pain of failure and some of the deepest tears I have ever shed followed. It was in these moments that I realized the depth of the expectations I put on myself. It took every sliver of personal power in me to enter the lodge for the fourth and final power round. I was terrified at the thought - I couldn’t bring myself to do it.... But I did. Not because I had to ‘succeed’ but because I allowed myself to understand that sometimes it’s okay to fall, and it’s equally as important to find your feet and stand again."
Heather's primary passion has been creating original pieces for clients who want to tell their personal story through her art and vision. Each piece takes an average of three months to complete.
