Heather is an LIC artist who uses her work to better understand and share her anxieties and depression. From a young age, Heather struggled with poor vision. Her obscured world caused a lot of stress and anxiety for her as a child which carried over into adulthood. When she started creating art, she reinvented this world through abstracting architectural and real world influences, either through paint or collage. Heather strives to explore how vision effect our reality. Most of Heather’s pieces mimic a dream-like state with endless possibilities of where and when. She creates art to help move past her mental incapacities and find a calming reality. Whether it is an escape or a memory, she hopes her work provokes some sort of experience for the viewer and eases their anxious thoughts.
