Heather opened her Studio East Village Art House, located in leafy Balmain East initially to continue teaching art to adults and school children after school and during school holidays. She had been teaching as an early childhood educator and decided on a change incorporating the best part of her day, teaching art.

Now, she has decided to extend the workshops on offer to adults as well, with a wealth of talent in textile art as well Art workshops. She extended her interest and knowledge when she and her family set up home in Tokyo for five years where she learnt ceramics, Satchiko, Boro embroidery and Sumie ( ink painting) and she makes her own ink from charcoal and gold leaf. Her studio is bright and welcoming located in the front of the family home.
