I have always wanted to paint from a young age. It is the way that I express myself. Painting allows me to interpret and process an abstract emotion to create something concrete, an image that people can see.
I love to paint. When I am about to start a new painting, I'm excited and look forward to watching the painting develop. For some people, they may have the same love for flying, or running a race, playing or watching a sport. We all have our own passion and this is mine.
Several people have asked me how I develop my ideas for my paintings. For me, my emotions are the main driver for my ideas. Whether it is an image that I have captured on camera, one that is directly in front of me or preserved in my mind, my emotions will determine how I interpret that image. My paintings are all a reflection of my life: a diary of sorts.
These paintings are a reflection of my life but I encourage you the viewer to step inside the painting and create your own story.
One of my most cherished pieces of art is a pastoral scene Heather captured on a trip through the Welsh countryside. Sheep graze on a multihued green hillside with a soft blue ocean background. It is the closest thing to meditation I have ever experienced. I move it around the house and it always imbues that which surrounds it with a bucolic serenity. Janet Rogers
As soon as I saw Heaven's Gate hanging at the Baka Gallery last year, I knew it was the painting my family needed. The colour and light of this peaceful oceanside setting has cast a spell on our dining room. I gaze at the scene and daydream that one day I'll visit the Newfoundland that Heather has portrayed.
I've always loved Heather's paintings, especially the way she captures light and shadows. Last year, I bought a long-admired painting of High Park. Its lush greens and sunlight streaming through the trees makes you feel like you could escape right into the painting. It's a lovely vibrant focal point in our living room that brings me joy every time I look at it. Elina
Heather was able to capture exactly what I was looking for. When I look at my painting it's like coming home. The colours are deep, warm and comforting. These four burnt orange flowers pushing their way through lush grass are strong and hopeful. Liz Nastasi
Heather’s portrait painting skills are phenomenal. She painted my husband’s portrait and exactly and intuitively captured his personality, although she’d never met him before his sittings for the portrait. She selected perfect colours for him, in the background and accessories. I am so glad I asked her to do this for us, as the picture brings me so much joy. I will ask her to paint my granddaughter next. Anne
I had been a big fan of Heathers work for many years so when I returned from a trip of a lifetime to New Zealand, I decided to surprise my husband with a commissioned painting from our travels. At first, I was quite nervous given there were lots of decisions to make - what picture, what size and where will it go - Heather's made it so easy. I quickly learned to trust her talented eye as we landed on the commission direction together. "Matt's break" was everything I had hoped for. Hubby and I love looking at it every day and reliving our amazing memories of the Tongariro Alpine Crossing. Thanks again Heather!
