Heather lives and works at the beach in Southern California. Her work is created with one of the oldest mediums still in use today called encaustic which is made of beeswax, damar resin and pigment. Encaustic is a Greek word meaning “to heat or burn in” (enkaustikos) and can be traced back to portraits painted in 100-300 A.D. by Greek painters in Egypt.
Heather went to the University of Southern California for her BFA but discovered her passion for encaustic at Otis College for Art and Design.
Her privately owned works are in Australia, New Zealand, Canada, England, and throughout the United States.
