Heather Backmeyer is a self-taught artist specializing in high contrast, mixed media, black and white contemporary abstracts. She uses basic shapes, powdered charcoal and ink to create contrast, design and space focussed pieces.
Heather has found her way back to visual art, after a long hiatus, and with that a new sense of dedication and creative determination.
Showing her work in several markets over the past year including 2018’s first Discover Art in the Valley show in Kelowna, a single piece shown in the Kelowna Art Gallery’s 2018 Member’s Show and currently multiple pieces exhibiting at the Ex Nihilo Winery in Lake Country. Heather’s 2019 goals are to show at more local wineries and galleries, and to break into the Vancouver art scene.
Her next show will be Discover Art in the Valley, at the Kelowna Curling Club, May 31st to June2nd. http://www.discoverartinthevalley.com/
