Having worked as a professional artist for many years Heather now runs workshops and classes in drawing, painting and sculpture from her studio overlooking Loch Ness, catering for all levels of ability. Although best known for her animal portraits she is also an accomplished all round artist producing life drawings, still life, landscape, portraits, cartoons, commercial artwork, book illustration and sculpture. Her classes are very popular and well attended. She is a great believer in one-to-one tuition and consequently her pupils get a lot of individual attention.
