As Heather Allen I have long been known for colorful architectural textiles. The name change is timely, it coincides with a new direction in my work.
The creative journal is an incredible tool, a tool that is indispensable to my work. My life is filtered, sorted and processed through my visual journals. The origins of my work can be found somewhere in their pages. Rereading them one can track the development and evolution of my ideas. Here in my home is Asheville, NC there is a library of journals that record, reflect and continually inspire me.
