Heather was born and spent her childhood in the West Midlands. After attending Wolverhampton and Chelsea Schools of Art, she spent her early career as a successful textile designer based in London and also working as a part-time lecturer.
In the 1980's she gave up teaching to concentrate on interior design, exhibition design and hand printed wallpapers, also illustrating several countryside and educational publications.
She has been a professional fine art painter for thirty years. Having led a fairly nomadic life, her last move was to Scotland ten years ago. She has had many successful exhibitions in Essex, Suffolk, Shropshire, Wales, Cumbria and more recently Scotland. Galleries Heather shows work with include:
