Heather Macorison’s admiration of the raw beauty of the natural landscape of Pittwater, which she calls home, is evident in her lively works. Working mostly from her large studio, she enjoys exploring a range of materials in her practice, including watercolour and charcoal, but cites oil painting as her favourite. Retiring from her job as a Medical Practitioner in 2004, she was then able to become an artist full time. She has since gained a Diploma of Visual Art at Northbridge School of Visual Arts followed by a Diploma of Fine Arts at Northern Beaches TAFE.
Citing Paul Klee, Kandinsky, Seurat, Rothko and Georgia O’Keefe as influences, Heather "seeks to explore colour and dynamism in the natural and abstract worlds". The vibrant images in her work evolve gradually through multiple layers of small brush strokes using many colours. This process takes several weeks as she waits for each layer to dry. Heather hopes to continue exploring various mediums and sharing her appreciation for the natural beauty of the Australian landscape.
