    Caistor Arts & Heritage Centre
    28 Plough Hill, Caistor, Lincolnshire, LN7 6LZ

    Much of Heather's work is inspired by the dramatic coastlines and countryside of Yorkshire and Scotland. Heather specialises in palette knife work, applying many layers of acrylic to capture the ever-changing moods and atmosphere of some of her favourite locations. Heather has no formal art training and bean with portraiture and figurative work - which she continues to develop - before experimenting with other subjects and mediums to develop her own dstinctive style. "There's something very spontaneous and exhilarating about working with a knife and I'm always discovering new techniques and finishes", says Heather. "I use acrylics because they are so fluid and forgiving, yet they dry so quickly that it's possible to layer the colours to create all kinds of amazing effects."

    Meet the artist on the 6th February 11:30 - 13:30.
