Artist, photographer and stylist Heather Ross is known for her wonderful sense of color, keen eye and evocative imagery. Her elegant nature inspired aesthetic is influenced by both her West Coast upbringing in Vancouver and two years spent living and antiquing in Paris, France.
She's a regular contributor as a photographer, stylist and writer to publications such as House & Home and Western Living for which she has been nominated for numerous National Magazine Awards.
A creative force of nature, she has a fine art and design background in painting, printmaking, ceramics and textile design. Her evocative artworks have been placed in numerous feature films and international collections. Her paintings, while abstracted, draw upon the elements of earth, water, air and sky, marking our connections to the seasons, the ephemeral qualities of time and place, and ultimately to our sense of belonging in the world.
In 2001 she opened her own boutique and gallery in Vancouver perfectly situated between the art and antiques area of South Granville and the Armoury Design District. She loves to use natural found objects in her charming displays and is drawn to simple organic forms and authentic materials. She hand picks all the treasures in her boutique and artfully curates vignettes throughout in her serene signature palette described as 'where the sea meets the shore'.
Her much awaited first book, the natural eclectic: a design aesthetic inspired by nature, is scheduled for release early spring 2016.
She continues to travel regularly on buying trips and assignments, always seeking beauty along her way. She loves to garden, cook and bake and enjoy time in the rustic countryside. A true animal lover, she cares about all creatures great and small.
