Painting commercially since 1985, Heather has sold her paintings throughout Australia and overseas. Heather is influenced by the natural environment and has a particular passion for Australian wildlife which is evident in her Animals with Attitude series, available in cards and prints. Her contemporary and prescriptive works are lively and vibrant. Largely the painting style has evolved through self experimentation. More recent works explore the musicality of the environment and the disordered order within the natural world. You can find Heather's paintings,cards, prints and art furniture on the Main Gallery Floor. Sometimes you will also find her in action painting at the Gallery.
