Heather Gillespie is a landscape painter from Winnipeg, Manitoba. During her youth, she attended The School of Art at the University of Manitoba. She then set painting aside while raising a family and worked many years in healthcare. Now retired, Heather has reconnected with her paint brush and devotes her time to refining her acrylic painting skills. She is a member of the Assiniboia Group of Artists and is a studio artist at Cre8ery Gallery and Studio in Winnipeg.
Heather is a gifted visual artist who delights in sharing her impressions of the magical beauty of our Manitoba lakes and forests. She embraces emotion and mixes it with colour and light which dances from her brush onto canvas. Her excellent sense of colour and bold brushstrokes display the vibrant life of nature in a most compelling way. These invigorating and expressive compositions capture and transport us toward dreams amongst the trees!
