"Let the beauty we love, be what we do." - Rumi
Art has always been an integral part of my life even though I am not formally educated in fine arts with the exception of a few introductory art courses in college. As a child I was surrounded by an environment enriched with the arts, spending my time amidst easels, paint brushes and turpentine while my mother taught art classes out of my our home. You could say I lived and breathed art as a young girl and that as a result painting and drawing feels somewhat second nature to me.
My creative space is a thirty foot diameter yurt in rural NH on the same property with our sugar house and farm with our chickens, beehives and gardens. It's a place to reconnect with the rhythms of nature and the beauty of spirit. A mandala in its own right, this sacred space is grounded in the five elements and oriented to the four directions. Surrounded by wetlands and deciduous forest we share the land with hawks, deer, coyote, owls and other wild neighbors.
Meditation and mindfulness practice led Heather back to her creative heart over a decade ago. Her practice was so life changing that she decided that she wanted to help others tap into their own internal wisdom. Finishing a two year training with Jack Kornfield and Tara Brach in 2019, she now offers mindfulness meditation trainings and workshops in her studio and other local venues in southern NH.
