Heather is a practising Artist and teacher living in the southern suburbs of Adelaide. She originally trained as an Art Teacher at the National Art School in Sydney from 1969 to 1972 where she majored in Painting and Drawing. When she was at art school she learned to practise the Transcendental Meditation® (TM) technique (“because they said it would increase my creativity”). Later she trained as a TM teacher and still uses this technique as a mental ‘creative tool’; - ‘ to keep my ideas fresh and flowing’ .
‘I am always creating something and like most artists I find that the act of creating is a wonderful end in itself. I enjoy exploring figurative and landscape painting, using a wide variety of surfaces and media. Generally I like to explore what lies below the surface of life, the motivations that propel people on in their lives or the emotions and the world of imagination that the landscape around us evokes’.
