ABOUT THE ARTISAN
Heather is originally from New Zealand and now calls the Sunshine Coast home. She has lived and taught in Borneo and The Bahamas for 11 years. Heather is a Mosaic Artist, drawing inspiration from geometric patterns in Nature, and from travel experiences, such as visiting Gaudi’s work in Barcelona and the ancient Turkish mosaics in Sardis and Ephesus.
She mosaic surfaces for both utility and asthetics, often using secondhand furniture, as much of it is made of beautiful wood and it’s exciting to ‘up do’ an old item. Taking pleasure in restoring something that was once obsolete, she also creates mosaiced mirror frames, trivets and tabletops that are new.
