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 use acrylics because I really enjoy layering and manipulating them to create depth, vibrancy and texture to the work.’

Heather’s work sells privately as well as through exhibitions and galleries throughout the UK. She is a committee member of East Riding Artists and a regular participant in the Staithes Festival of Art and Heritage.

When she is not working as a magazine journalist, writing about homes & interiors for national publications, Heather spends every spare minute painting from her studio near Howden.

She holds workshops in palette knife painting from home and also runs workshops for art groups.
