Heron's  work explores function, form + negative space. Her interest in texture + motifs from the mid-century modern also inform her work.

 

Her choice of materials include paper, fabric, wire + metal. New + reclaimed materials are often sourced by chance.

    

         'My interest in paper has been central to my current body of work. In revaluing

          paper as a contemporary art medium, I consider the integrity of its 'everydayness.'

                                                                                                  

 

Heron’s work has been seen @ Brunswick Street Gallery Melbourne, Union Banks Arts Centre Clunes Victoria, Brighton Jetty Classic Sculptures, Stirling Fine Arts, Scarlatti’s Gallery, Skillogalee Wines, Nepenthe Wines + Fox Creek Wines.

 

She has been awarded with merits + commendations, including a Southern Ocean 3D Art prize @ Robe.

 

Heron was selected to participate in the Double Vision, Port to Port Artist Exchange Program - a local government initiative. Her work is included in the City of Onkaparinga art collection.

 

Heron was born in the Adelaide Hills, lives on the coast in the Fleurieu + has a visual arts + design degree.
