Heather is an artist, writer, and Master Certified Professional Coach.
With 26 years experience in museums, archaeology, art and art therapy, she holds enough graduate work to make a PhD cry.
Her graduate studies range from Anthropology, Archaeology, Art Therapy to Arts and Nonprofit Management.
Heathers current obsession focuses on ritual, liminal space and the transitions we make through thresholds and portals into a sense of communitas. This leads toward the concept called limutas, also known as a "sense of place."
This is Heathers life’s work: examining the liminal spaces creative people inhabit, as well as the transitions between moments, worlds, and ideas.
Heather has presented talks ranging from artifact handling to Celtic archaeology; from historical research for writers to volunteering for neurodivergent creatives. Current talks center on conquering creative blocks and making creative leaps through the use of art therapy tools to aid the writer and artist.
Her artwork ranges from oil painting to plein air painting; from collage to pottery. Her artwork has been featured in literary journals. She is represented by several galleries and her work can be found in private collections around the U.S.
As a writer, Heathers work has been published in literary journals, magazines and newspapers. Her writing ranges from non fiction, creative non fiction, historical fiction, memoir, and poetry.
