About Heather Wilson
Many people are interested to find out I have a double degree in Nutrition and Food Science from Otago University. After several years in the corporate world I decided to escape the daily grind and follow my dreams and I’m now a full-time professional artist. I’ve been living in beautiful Hawkes Bay for 10 years after growing up in Lower Hutt, Wellington. I’m inspired by growing up in the late 60’s and 70’s. My work often has a retro vibe. I’m also inspired by Gio-Ponti, Bisazza tiles, Yayoi Ku-Sama, Comme des Garcons, Andy Wahol and Piet (Mondrian).
Each year I exhibit at the NZ Art Show and regularly exhibit at school shows including Baradene, Mt Albert Grammar and Orakei School in Auckland and Napier Girls High School. This year is my second year exhibiting with the Nelson Art Expo. Represented by: Ora in Wellington, Zohar in Mt Maunganui, Art Matakana, Flagstaff Gallery in Auckland and Helena Bay Gallery.
