Heather is a printmaker, painter, and textile designer. She studied painting as an undergraduate, receiving her BFA from Boston University School for the Arts, and completed her MFA from the University of Oregon’s School of Art + Design. She has spent many years designing textiles and architectural graphics, both of which have informed and inspired her studio work.

Heather’s work is anchored by her interest in patterning and motif. The compositional interplay of abstract elements: color, line and shape provide an endless language for expressing impressions about time, place and states of sensory awareness.
