Heather has won many gold and silver national and international awards for her sugar artistry. Her demonstrations, workshops and awards have been written about in national magazines, the local press and featured on TV. Sculptures are made from paper or polymer clay and her own permanent sugar recipe which dries as hard as porcelain therefor lasts for many years.. Decorated with mixed media - rope, copper, pewter, feathers, raffia, crystals etc

Artist Statement:
I design humorous mixed media figures as well as trying to portray mans relationship and growing dependence on gadgets and machines, hence the cyber like figures I sometimes make showing metal integrated with flesh.
I have many influences and am inspired by puppet designers, the work of American doll artists such as Susanna Oroyan and the humorous automatons of Chomick and Meder, African figure sculpture, modern music videos, the illustrations of H.R. Giger to mention just a few.
I have no desire to illustrate from life, I much prefer to use my imagination so there are no rules! I love the quirky, humorous and unusual, I aim to surprise the viewer (and hopefully, occasionally raise a smile).
