From an early age Heather, a print maker, has loved to create, whether it's drawing, sewing, doing collage or with any other media. She says it's when she's at her happiest.
It was a visit to Northern Print in Newcastle a few years ago that reminded her of her art college days and to buy her first lino print kit. Heather says as soon as she smelled the inks on that visit, she knew print making was something she wanted to do.
"It was a real lightbulb moment! In fact some of my most profound moments have come when he subject really means something to me."
Heather says these moments really connect her to her audience as she loves to create pieces that are meaningful. Her most recent pieces are her pebble prints, which come from her need to be by the sea.
"The sea both calms and terrifies me. Walking on the beach can be a meditative experience if I'm alone and joyful with my family...either way highly restorative."
