Heather began her career as a fashion designer in San Francisco, where she combined her sense of style with her love for textiles. Traveling the globe and working closely with textile studios and manufacturers her love for prints and graphics bloomed. In 2000 she followed her passion by launching her surface design brand. Heather swapped coasts and now lives in the picturesque seaside town of Kennebunk, Maine. She starts every morning walking the beach with her dog, soaking up inspiration before settling into her vintage farmhouse studio to create new designs.
Heather is an imaginative designer with a passion for pattern and color. Her diverse style bridges the gap between retro and contemporary design with a touch of whimsy mixed in...because the designs you surround yourself by should make you smile. Heather’s extensive catalog of surface designs and illustrations includes lush florals, sophisticated geometrics, retro inspired art and whimsical novelty prints that evoke a sense of wonder in kids and the young at heart alike. Each design that Heather creates is infused with the joy that she gets while creating them and that joy shines through on the products they adorn.
