“There is a tradition in English gardening to create different ‘rooms’,spaces in which to lose yourself ‘out of doors’. As a painter and a gardener, I apply this ethos to my paintings. Many people tire of modern life and harbour ‘dreams of leaving’; somewhere to escape to where stress can fall away. Within my paintings I try to create this ‘place’ regardless of the subject matter…Country pathways, empty beaches and corners of woods and gardens.”

Heather is the master/mistress of light and shadow creating narratives with her superb paintings of pathways often leading to the sea. Her greens are particularly ‘right’, something that most artists fail to achieve.
