Ready to Hang
This series of pieces comes from the joy of exploring simple forms together with complex repeating patterns. Beginning with a decorative fabric, alternately obscuring and accentuating the underlying designs, and embellishing with gilded geometric shapes, I hope to strike a beautiful balance between the orderly and the irregular.
This painting is on a cradled wood panel, ready to hang. The wood on the sides is sanded and waxed for natural beauty.
Heather started her career in graphic design, moving to art full-time in 2001. She began with a focus on collage, which followed naturally from web design – bringing together existing elements in a pleasing and distinctive way. At a time when our culture is seeing a resurgence of traditional crafts –crocheting, embroidery and other handwork – Heather is integrating these crafts into her rich and varied canvases. She has been making art in her studio at Secession Art & Design since it began in 2007.
