Heather loved art from an early age, and spent many happy hours growing up learning about art from her father, who was an accomplished commercial artist. Living in Western Canada, she quickly developed a love for nature, animals and the beautiful Canadian Rocky Mountains.
Although Heather practiced law for thirty years, she actively resumed painting approximately twenty years ago and painted with a local group of artists whenever she could.
Now that she has recently retired from law, Heather is able to focus on art on a full-time basis. Heather continues to develop her skills through practice, workshops and extensive study. She credits much of her growth as an artist to instructional publications and other materials published by the master painter, Richard Schmid (http://www.richardschmid.com)
