Heather studied at the Kent Institute of Art & Design and began her career illustrating stories and editorials for a wide range of magazines, including the Radio Times, Shout! and Woman's Realm. She has illustrated ten published children's books to date. In 2019 she wrote and illustrated her first children's story Oddsocks which is available for sale.
Heather is based in her home town of Hastings and exhibits locally and nationally, her most recent exhibition being in Chelsea at the beginning of this year.
She has been selected three consecutive years to exhibit her work in the international Peace Project's travelling exhibition across America, in aid of war victims in Sierra Leone.
In 2014 , her "unique and colourful style" earned her the award of Illustrator of the Year by Aspire magazine.
In 2015, Heather was commissioned by the Northiam Conservation Society to paint the poppies at the Tower of London. Her war-themed artwork has been described as "having the soul of a much older person" as shown in her paintings of evacuees and life on the Homefront.
Heather's sea-themed paintings are inspired by her birth town of Hastings, where she lives with her daughter and two dogs, and paints in a converted loft.
Heather is a qualified primary school teacher and runs art workshops for children and adults. All of Heather's artworks may be purchased as framed, hand-finished prints.
