Statement

Heather lives in south west Scotland. She enjoys working with water based mediums and watercolour in particular for its translucency. Having experimented with this medium for several years, she has developed a very individual approach. Her methods can involve many painted layers, slowly building up areas of intense colour to create depth in the finished work. In contrast, other paintings are lively and spontaneous, having a freshness more often associated with this medium. There may be a suggestion of reality; however the picture plane is often broken by abstract geometric forms that give the painting a surreal quality.
