I'm excited to introduce y'all to Heather this week. I received one of her beautiful necklaces as a gift from Alison last year. Since then I have connected with her on IG and I adore her unique work.

1. When did you first begin creating art?
I have been drawing and painting for as long as I can remember. From our dining room table, my mom used to teach art classes to the neighborhood kids. This is where I first started painting with watercolors, and is probably why it remains one of my favorite mediums.

2. What is your favorite/most sentimental creation you have made? Why?
Though my favorite medium is watercolor, and my favorite things to create are my Original Hand Painted Necklaces, a few creations that will always be special to me are 3 Acrylic paintings I did a few years ago. My friend returned from a Missions trip to Uganda, and several of her photos inspired me to paint them. I painted a series of Ugandan Children, and quickly sold all three paintings. I hope to someday add to the series. I attached a photo of 2 of the paintings in their new home, along with the 3rd Ugandan Boy.
3. Is there a project you've always dreamed of creating? What would it be?
Quite a few. One project that is on the top of my list is a large painting that is composed of tiny 1 inch paintings to make a huge, beautiful, colorful collage. I love painting tiny! I have a feeling this project will take quite a while - stay tuned!
