Heather grew up in a small town in western New York where she learned to paint and draw from her grandmother. She worked in various media: watercolor, pencil, charcoal, pen and ink. She studied art and architecture in school and earned a Bachelor of Architecture degree. Currently, she has been exploring encaustic painting, the ancient medium of manipulating beeswax and oil paint on panels. She was intrigued by encaustics because of the ability to layer compositions of rich, luminous color suspended in wax. Adding and subtracting, her process allows her to move back and forth, in and out, within her paintings. She paints with the power of the medium to create depth, movement and texture.
