Heather Burton, in her own words:
"I am a Yorkshire-based artist specialising in palette knife work. I love capturing emotion and movement in figurative painting and reflecting the depth and diversity of the UK’s extraordinary landscapes.
I come from a family of keen amateur painters. My mum studied at the Grimsby School of Art while my father discovered his skills in watercolour painting in his late Seventies.
Family commitments and a full time career in journalism left little time for drawing and painting until our daughters left home. Since then it’s taken off in a way I could never have dreamed of and I now work as a professional artist as well as continuing to write for national and regional magazines.
The artistic world is vibrant, exciting – and flourishing, and I hope you will enjoy the paintings as much as I enjoy creating them."
