Star of the Week

Meet Heather, she is my Star of the week.

Again I came across Heather when I was looking at her work on the Flickr group Fairiezine.

I always think it’s fascinating to see the vast variation in what artists produce. Heather builds up and paints on collaged backgrounds, something I had never see before, or not noticed. So you can see (as in life) the many layers behind the painting. In her words ‘Mixed media folk art inspired by love, family, faith, history and life out on the prairie’.

Heather was producing a very eye-catching collection of Angels or winged ladies rather than the traditional idea of an angel and mother and child paintings. Eventually I gave in and purchased a print called ‘Cherish’ which you can see above. I have yet to frame it and give it a place on the wall above my PC but until then it sits in front of me while I am on here.

It is interesting to see how Heathers inspiration varies from time to time and yet still maintains that ‘eclectic’ feel. Go take a look by following the linked picture below, enjoy :-)
