Heather began quilting over 23 years ago, taking a turn toward art quilting around the year 2000. She self-publishes her line of more than 100 patterns under the name Wild Heather Designs. She has been teaching her designs and techniques for over 15 years and, for the past 10 years, has taught a 13-month color and design class during which she has worked with more than 2,000 aspiring artists.
Creating art is Heather’s driving force, her reason for being here, her love and her passion. It is her hope to inspire her students to creative freedom and help them discover their possibilities.
Heather is the mother of two grown girls and married Tom, her new best friend, in the summer of 2007. She and her husband own a quilt shop, Wild Heather, in Englewood, Colorado and an internet store, www.wildheatherdesigns.com.
