Heather Wilson – Maker of Mad and Beautiful Things







Heather has been a resident maker at Heart Gallery since October 2007 proving very popular with my loyal customers and visitors alike. She has recently launched her new website to compliment her beautiful, creative space in Heart Gallery – http://hwilsonart.com.

Heather makes finely detailed personalised paintings,
thought provoking, and sometimes funny decorative objects, 
collages and keepsakes, weavings and murals.

Taking inspiration from the items we hoard and collect, 
Heather creates personal artworks, arranging the objects 
and mementoes gathered by the client, making them into 
a celebration of a life, a holiday or a special occasion.

Heather is mainly known for her immensely popular 
Personalised Name Pictures. These are finely detailed
watercolour paintings, with the letters of the name 
set in one of many varied background scenes.

Details which can be included are: Date, weight, 
time and place of birth; favourite toys, occupations,
hobbies. Family members and pets can all be put into the
picture (copied from photographs provided).

Not only for Babies, these pictures are perfect presents
for Weddings, Anniversaries and Special Birthdays,
such as 21st, 50th, 60th, etc.

Here are some examples of her watercolour Name Pictures which look even better in the flesh so do bob in and see an example in Heart Gallery. Maybe time to have a think about ideas for Christmas pressies/Weddings/Christenings/Anniversaries/Birthdays etc.
