Heather grew up in a little town called Uttoxeter in Staffordshire where she started her creative journey studying applied art. She then went on to study Illustration at the University of Lincoln and graduated with a 2:1 in 2013.

Since graduating, Heather has worked in a few different creative roles, from selling greetings cards to designing websites. Heather is now represented by Astound, an Illustration Agency in Manhattan.
Heather’s ultimate dream would be to work at the Disney animation studios! Having been obsessed with Disney her entire life, it has become a major influence in most of her artwork. Her growing collection of movie art books also feeds her inspiration, especially “Lovely: Ladies of Animation” which includes gorgeous artwork from the like of Victoria Ying, Lorelay Bove, Brittney Lee, Mingjue Helen Chen and Claire Keane.
