Heather E. S. Armstrong
I was born and raised in Abbotsford B.C. Canada, and spent my childhood years on a picturesque 13 acre farm with six siblings. My parents encouraged imagination and creativity, along with a respect and appreciation for Godʼs creation.
I showed an interest in drawing and painting at an early age, and was able to take acrylic and oil painting lessons after completion of high-school. Then, later I took one year of graphic arts at Fraser Valley College. Since then I have taken a number of workshops and seminars with various artists including Robert Bateman.
My paintings are realistic in style and portray the everyday life and the natural world that is dear to me. I use my own photos and sketches to help create the detail that I put into each painting. I work with various mediums including, watercolor, oils and acrylics. I am a member of the Quesnel Art Gallery, and also an active member of the Federation of Canadian Artists.
