HEATHER WEST BIO
Heather studied traditional illustration in her "formative years," beginning with summer programs at the Rhode Island School of Design and at Skidmore College, followed by a formal 4-year education at the Maryland Institute College of Art (BFA, Illustration) and a study abroad at the Edinburgh College of Art (Illustration Major). She has 15 years professional experience as a marketing manager and graphic designer.
Heather actively participates in her family's longstanding independent real estate brokerage, and she still makes time to create new art and learn new skills.
Her illustrations utilize a multitude of different media including watercolor/pen & ink, mixed and digital media, colored pencils, and oils. Her illustrations are often narrative and center around people and natural scenes.
Heather lives on an 8-acre parcel of land in NH where she keeps sheep, dogs, and many gardens.
