About Me

Heather Matthews in the studio, 2016

Background

Hi! I'm Heather Matthews. In 2008, I finally answered my calling: visual art. For the last 10 years, 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.

"What kind of art do you do?"

I use many different media, but seem to come back over and over to collage, doubleweave, and figure drawing.

My Inspirations

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.
