Heather Niven

Heather Niven wants to believe that fairies live at the bottom of everyone's garden. However, the evidence of her senses tells her that the world is a far more wonderful and terrible place to allow that to happen. Whilst remaining remarkably sane, (for an artist) her major preoccupation with reality is where beauty and pain meet, which allows the making of her work to become a celebration of the diversity of humanity and the conditions they find themselves in. In an attempt to achieve this she uses paint, clay, wood or anything else in the kitchen which isn't otherwise employed at the time.

She hopes you like her work, if for no other reason than it costs her something emotionally to make.
