Heather Fitz - 2021
Heather is self taught and has been painting many years; she enjoys painting animals and flowers. Heather has won many awards showing her work in local exhibitions.
Her love of painting goes back as far as she can remember, as a child was always happy doing anything artistic. Like many others, family and work were a priority but she is now able to devote her time to enjoying painting her favourite subjects, animals and especially hares in watercolour.
Heather says: "Hares have captured my heart for years, I love their quirky awkwardness, their large eyes, their ears that are so pronounced and flexible and they make me smile.
"I am so lucky to have a wildlife photographer friend Richard Ansell, who will sit for hours waiting for the 'right shot' in the Suffolk countryside.
"I also visit Zoos and Animal Parks to get some exciting original shots.
"You might see me scrabbling around on the floor trying to capture a 'face on' shot. Animals are renown for being very awkward to photograph, they are either eating, sleeping or very shy."
