Hi! I’m Heather - an artist, illustrator, and storyteller, and I’m so happy you’re here!
I grew up with a love for drawing. My imagination was always going wild with colors and stories and ideas for pictures. I was the child who really thought she could spot a leprechaun on the walk home from school if she only looked closely enough at the grass!
Creativity has always been a part of my life - whether through making art, decorating my home, singing and music, telling funny stories, or writing. I used to make bad art as a joke on an old blog as a practice in the art of vulnerability, and as a way to reclaim my personality after years of being a stay at home mom. It was a lot of fun and my friends enjoyed my ridiculous stories.
Then I started pursuing the dream of being an authentic artist. I began with painting and drawing things that were meaningful to me, and my first shop, Honeychild Forest, was born. It featured painted wooded signs, art prints, embroidered art and custom paintings. My focus then became full time illustration and painting.
I live in Western NY, with my husband, kids, and two dogs. I LOVE nature, lots of color, styling my home, making things, new adventures, making people laugh and my imagination is still going wild with colors and stories and ideas for pictures. Welcome to my fun little world!
