Winter Watercolor Greetings

Willow Heath is a visual artist, watercolor illustrator, art educator, and storyteller. Willow spent her early childhood off-the-grid in the remote Alaskan wilderness, an experience that is reflected in Willow’s art and unique teaching methods. Willow has been exhibiting her paintings in galleries for 20 years and instructing art courses to adults and youth since 2000. Willow’s visual art is composed of watercolor vignette inspirations, each displaying Willow’s eye for detail, realism, and experimentation of the medium. “As a visual artist I create paintings from my personal inspirations, as a teacher I guide my students through the building blocks to create and draw upon their own inspirations. I feel it is integral to enjoy the process of art as much as the outcome. With this in mind I design curriculum that reflect both the inspirational and academic qualities within the creative process.”
