Heather Brush is a mixed media and assemblage artist whose themes often revolve around literacy and literary elements. Paint and ink is in her blood; her great great grandfather taught lithography at Cooper Union College in New York City; her great grandfather painted sets on Broadway. Heather’s art would compare as less refined for she works outside the lines. Her style is fresh, a little twisted and a little out there. Her art is set free, bursting to break out of her mind. Art was her world in her youth. As a child, when people would ask her what she wanted to be when she grew up, she would respond, “I AM an artist.” Starting very young, this piece shows her uncle, as seen from the eyes of a 3 1/2 year old. (She’s much better now.)
New pieces are presented on the blog and Facebook artist page quite often.
Her works have been on display at: Edible Vibe Cafe, City Bliss, Gallery 108, One Block East Gallery, The Artisan Center Along the Crooked Road, Heartwood- Southwest Virginia’s Artisan Gateway, Freckles retro shop, Ripple, and WVTF Studio.
Heather is a freelance writer and photographer whose words and images have appeared in The Roanoker Magazine, 16 Blocks Magazine, ValleyBlend Magazine, Senior News, Virginia’s Informed Parent Magazine, The Salem Times, The Cave Spring Connection, The Vinton Messenger, The Radford News Journal, The News Messenger, The New Castle Record, and The Roanoke Times. Her life covers all things artistic.
