Heather Aston

was born and raised in West Vancouver, BC. A graduate of The Vancouver School of Art with Honours in Printmaking in 1971, Heather later continued her studies at the Santa Reparata Institute in Florence, Italy. She was invited as a resident artist in 2001 to the OM Printhouse in Yokohama, Japan, where she created monotypes and rediscovered her skills in drypoint etching. Her work is represented in galleries in three Canadian provinces and is included in numerous private and corporate collections locally and internationally. Over the years as an artist, Heather has developed her own printmaking techniques to construct a richly coloured, energetic landscape. She focuses on the organic world of plants, revealing life’s passages as intimate and surprising.

“I like the immediacy of what is organic and the creative spontaneity in the painterly process of making monotypes. The style and mood of my work comes from personal experience, emotional expression and life caught in the moment.”
