Heather's talk was a step away from a traditional chronological story of a person's life!
She brought with her a wonderful array of her work, from some of her earliest pieces to her most recent explorations.

Each one really did tell a story, and Heather is a natural story teller and keen observer of what other people would walk straight past and not think twice about.
Her talent is evident, when you can feel like your were there in her tale.
Her work in Africa, born from a personal perspective of sight loss and the effect this can have on a person, is inspirational.
This short blog does not do justice to Heather's engaging and hilarious talk, you must hear her and see the rugs she produces for yourself.
