Heather was born on the east coast to two visual artists - a painter and a potter, grew up in St. Louis, and has been a traveler from the start. Los Angeles is the 16th place she's lived. The list includes Maine, Chicago, Austin, London, Montana, and Jackson Hole for three years, including a memorable winter spent there as a ranch caretaker – just her, three horses, and ten feet of snow. Her connection to special places is an essential part of her psyche, as is a constant sense of movement, both of which keeps her exploring the road ahead.
