Art Supplies Really Do Grow on Trees. The forest and the sea are great loves that impact Heather’s senses.

During the summer she forages for local plants that provide the base, pigment-patterns for her textile art. As the winter months approach, she creates the next layer of sea-inspired detail, using dry felting techniques.

Eco-printing involves laying plant material onto fabric, bundling the textile around a tube, binding it tightly, and then boiling the package to release and transfer the natural pigments in the plant material onto the substrate. Dry felting uses a barbed needle to join strands of wool to the textile base.

Taste your future in the sea’s breeze; it is endless and saturated with hope.
