Heidi's prints have a sense of the dramatic. Placing birds centre stage against a background saturated in colour and billowing forms, these prints are all about the joy of being in the here and now. "How the birds sit together in my paintings is very important. It is not my intention to depict natural bird behaviour but to subvert it a little, so it reflects us. I want the birds to relate to each other in a group dynamic, with some being more dominant or hesitant than others. I'm not sure why I do this. It maybe because these paintings are imitations of nature and therefore filtered through my consciousness. Foliage and habitat are only suggested by use of colour and form. This gives me a way to hold the birds in place and set them centre stage without trying to make anything too real. These images are a way of bringing birds closer into my life". Heidi lives on the South downs and works from her home studio.
