Having completed a BA (Hons) Fine Art course in her native Belfast, Heather relocated to Reading to study the MFA course at the University. Her work is research-based and employs a range of media including Installation, sculpture and drawing, often incorporating a site-specific element. Recent work has been a meditation on youth, memory and mortality reflecting on her upbringing during the most turbulent years of the Northern Ireland conflict. The works draw directly from personal experience and consider how the narratives of the past are constructed and presented.
