About the Author

Heather is a graphic designer, fine artist, author, crafter, and beekeeper. The inspiration for most of her work comes from animals and nature. She enjoys movies of almost any genre, art, travel, a good story and a good laugh. A Connecticut native, she resides in Milford with her husband John.

She enjoys combining traditional art media with technology. Her skill for bringing ideas from the digital world into the tactile world and vice versa is something she prides herself on greatly. For Heather, a paintbrush is just as much of an essential tool as a mouse. Her process for creating her work very often begins with a pencil and ends with a 3D printer.

The scope of Heather's artistic endeavors is ever evolving and includes painting, character creation, story telling, illustration, animation, and 3D printing. She is the author and illustrator of The Adventures of Gerry the Grasshopper and The Tale of the Fox & the Cricket as well as the author and illustrator of a series of stories which she compiled into a book called Curious Creatures and Fairy Tales. This series was based on eight mixed media figures she created. Heather turned one of these characters called the Dandy into an animated short which was featured in the New Haven International Film Festival and the 401 Film Fest, both in 2019. In addition, she created a line of interactive toys called Cuckoobean Pals, which she has begun featuring in humorous stories on Instagram.
