“IT IS NOT THE STRONGEST OF THE SPECIES THAT SURVIVE, NOR THE MOST INTELLIGENT, BUT THE ONE MOST RESPONSIVE TO CHANGE.” -CHARLES DARWIN
Life is about change. It’s about the constant state of learning and evolving into something better than you were before. Adaptation is key to evolution.
Hello, my name is Heather Matter and I am an artist and illustrator with a passion for knowledge and understanding of the natural world. I am currently studying Art and Design, and while creating art is my passion, science is my muse. I am looking forward to the opportunity to challenge myself both as an artist and as a student. Everyday I am fascinated by the abundance of inspiration in the world- the endless curiosities and wonders that the world has to offer.
My primary focus as an artist is to study the balance of opposites which are present in nature, as well as exploring the mystery and uncertainty of the unknown. The idea of nature evoking simultaneous feelings of both comfort and fear inspires my work and helps to fuel my imagination. My goal as an artist is not only to use this inspiration to create beautiful illustrations and share them with the world, but also to inspire others to challenge themselves and grow in their own work as well.
That is why I am here. To grow, not just as an artist and illustrator, but also as someone dedicated to pushing through the boundaries that both life and the mind impose on us all.
