Hi! I'm Heather Matthews. In 2008, I finally answered my calling: visual art. Since then, I've made all sorts of things in my studio and in the BFA program at the local university in Fort Collins, Colorado. My strengths are design, precision, and finishing.
I use many different media, but seem to come back over and over to weaving, mixed media pieces, and figure drawing.
Color, pattern, ritual, community, relationship, reverence, reflection, the male form, feminism, systems of race & class, the world around me and how I act in it. All of these things inform my work.
Starting in August 2021, I'll be on sabbatical from the art life in Colorado and traveling the world! Don't worry, art will still be a part of the journey. Feel free to follow our travel blog here or follow us on Instagram @hpworldtravel.
