Student artist Heather who has just completed her Photography and Digital Art 3 Year Course with Cambridge Community Arts.

Continue reading below…

When did the course start? 

‘September 2017 photography 2 years. Digital art 1 year (starting September 2019)’ 

What made you decide you wanted to do the course? 

‘I did not have confidence when I started, and I wanted to try out new skills in how to use a camera and photography and then digital art. I wanted to find what new things I would be good at.’

What did you enjoy the most about the course? 

‘Seeing my finished work at the exhibition in Cambridge. I also like sharing my work with the group and getting to know them.’

What inspires you Heather?

‘Wildlife, butterflies and birds.’

What is your favourite piece of work that you have done?

‘Animation work’

Do you have any plans to use your course moving forward? 

‘I am hoping to use digital art more in my current job at Beautifully Made’

What else have you have been doing – anything you would like to mention? 

‘I continue work every day and am enjoying creating new cards for HeatherBeeArts.’ 

Harvey the cat did not mind in the slightest being photographed and then altered with various digital programming including a very dashing top hat! Heather repeated the process with a photo of her Dad which was inspired by the artist Giuseppe Arcimboldo who was an Italian painter best known for creating imaginative portrait heads made entirely of objects such as fruitsvegetables, flowers, fish and books.

You can see more of Heather’s artwork on her very own website HeatherBeeArts as well as following her on Instagram

A huge congratulations from all of us at Rowan Heather. A fantastic achievement and we cannot wait to see what you do next!
