Heather Philpott is an emerging self-taught artist and long-time creative. She grew up in the southern suburbs of Sydney and 20years ago moved to the south coast of New South Wales to build a nest 150 metres from the “Big Blue”, otherwise known as the Pacific Ocean.
Heather has a passion for capturing beautiful ocean moments in acrylic paintings, exploring the wondrous aquamarines of the water, greys of stormy skies, the secret golds and pinks of dawn and the soft hues of dusk. She likes to portray the life of the human form engaging with the “Big Blue” and the feelings of joy, rapture, delight reflection, peace, contemplation and freedom that the ocean brings.
She is at home when she is immersed in nature, lost in her garden or walking her dog along the coastline. Heather is fascinated by flowers, seed pods, driftwood and cloud formations. These will sometimes sneak into her artwork too.
