Heather Niven

Heather Niven 5


Heather's work includes representations of the beauty around us, mixed with a dash of surreal parallel imaginary world. Using a range of media, Heather builds her work in layers, creating stories through the strata.
After 30 years as a painter, she now also explores ceramics, using ancient processes to create unique pieces.
