Biography A native Calgarian, Heather Erion grew up fascinated with nature, both wild and domesticated. Her childhood art was of the animals she either knew or longed to meet. As she matured, portraiture and figures captured her interest, followed later by flora. Heather studied under Alberta artist Marion Barker, before enrolling in the University of Calgary Fine Arts Department, where she studied under such diverse artists as John Hall and Gerald Hushlak. After graduation, she moved to Ontario. In the Ottawa region, her art was displayed in several galleries and exhibitions. Heather returned to Calgary in 2001. While trained in oil and acrylic painting, soft pastel and coloured pencil are now Heather's mediums of choice. She finds them both challenging and exciting. Heather's works reflect a love of the natural world, and exploration of human life and experiences. She does not paint the grandiose or commonly depicted subject matter, but chooses instead to explore that which is often overlooked or carelessly dismissed. Heather's artistic influences include artists such as Archimboldi, Marcel Duchamp, and M.C. Escher. Heather has received numerous awards for her art, including Runner-up in Drawing in the Calgary Colour Day Festival (1987), cover image in the 1999 competition for the Kanata Telephone Directory, and the Coloured Pencil Award in the Kanata Art Club Juried Exhibition (2000). Heather's work hangs in private collections both nationally and internationally.
