Heather was born and raised in Portage La Prairie, Manitoba. She moved to Vermilion with her husband and children in 2005. She quite accidentally fell into Pottery when her daughter was invited to try it out, and while her daughter didn’t continue with it, Heather had found her passion. She has been quite actively pursuing pottery since 2010 and now also instructs pottery classes through the local Vermilion Pottery Guild.
In September of 2020, Heather opened Upper Level Pottery and Art Gallery. Here she can follow her passion of the arts, and grow her dream of having a place to showcase her pottery as well as supporting other Potters and Artists of all art mediums.
