My name is Heather, I’m a Christian and an artist residing in Eastern Oregon. When I was young, I loved picture books ( and still do!). To me, if it didn’t have pictures it wasn’t worth reading, and I always judged a book by its cover. My favorite books from the Library were written and illustrated by Bill Peet. I also fell in love with the red and gold cover of, Treasure Island ( which also had colorful illustrations inside). As a kid I wanted to become a cartoon animator and studied the different styles of cartoon characters. Since then, I have developed my own style. When I reached my teens, I started thinking more seriously about art and began to draw realism. Later on, my younger sister, Theresa, ( who I lovingly call, the “Kid”) began writing stories and I started sketching her illustrations. I enjoyed developing her characters and imagining her various scenes. Now the Kid is all grown up and is illustrating her own books. As time went on, I dabbled in many different medias and have gained valuable experience. I enjoy blogging and helping others with their blogs, I love creating illustrative characters and still dream of animating one day. My dream now, is to help other people’s dreams come to life by creating illustrations and art for them. Wouldn’t it be lovely if dreams could come true? Maybe we could work together to make it happen!
