Heather Hamrick Member Since March 2011 Artist Statement Heather Hamrick was born and raised in Texas, and currently lives in Bastrop,Texas.
Heather began this journey in August of 2009, when she had to stay home for a week after gracefully stepping off a bus and breaking her foot in Dallas. "I went to the local art store and picked up some canvas and acrylic paint and thought, 'why not'. I've been addicted ever since." At the time, breaking her foot seemed a painful inconvenience. Today, Heather sees it as a wonderful time of self-discovery and a surprising blessing.
Not bound by formal training, Heather's artistic freedom and experimentation with mediums and techniques jump from the canvas and create a fresh, unique style all her own.
Heather has recently begun work with non-traditional mediums and techniques. Her passion is to explore her creativity and learn as she goes. Heather says her work takes her on an emotional roller coaster from excitement and anticipation to absolute frustration to "hell yes, that's going on my wall".
"My goal is to simply enjoy the art I create and my hope is that you will enjoy it, too. "
