Coffee and Lemons, 50 x 50cm

Much of Heather’s work is inspired by the dramatic coastlines and countryside of Yorkshire, northern England and Scotland. Heather specialises in palette knife work, applying many layers of acrylics to capture the country’s ever-changing moods and atmosphere. "There’s something very spontaneous and exhilarating about working with a knife and I’m always discovering new techniques and finishes," says Heather. "I mainly use acrylics because I really enjoy layering and manipulating them to create depth, vibrancy and texture to the work." Heather’s work – which also includes large figurative pieces - sells privately both in the UK and abroad, as well as through exhibitions and galleries throughout the north. She is a committee member of East Riding Artists. Heather’s dual passions in life are painting and writing. She has pursued a journalistic career in newspapers and magazines since leaving school, and still writes for homes & interiors publications, alongside features on artisan creators and makers. As well as consistently creating new work, Heather also runs workshops for art groups and holds workshops from her home/studio near Howden, East Yorkshire.
