Heather is a scenic and costume designer. She enjoys working collaboratively with theatre artists of various disciplines to create new and imaginative theatre. Her interest in devised and physical theatre, site specific work and puppetry compliment her creative process, exploring physical materials within the development and rehearsal process, to combine space, costume, lighting and sound with movement, voice and narrative.
''As a collaborator and artist, Heather is inspiring. She has a real knack for bringing new ideas to the table that contribute
to the forward motion of the artistry while also supporting the momentum of the project. She is excellent at adapting to the process while also maintaining a leadership position. I find it quite rare to work with a designer who can nail this balance consistently and with such enthusiasm."

'Heather’s expertise working in devised theatre demonstrates her flexibility and generosity in a very creative and demanding process. I have always felt comfortable and supported as her collaborator. She is willing to listen and accommodate new directions, she is able to take an idea and turn it into a beautiful set piece or costume. She is a great problem solver. Her own passion as an artist in theatre, in puppetry, and as a visual artist makes her an inspiration to both her peers and her students.'
