Heather Younger is an illustrative mixed media artist who enjoys creating beautiful images by playing with texture and line. Formally trained at the New World School of the Arts in Miami and the Maryland Institute College of Art in Baltimore, she delights in awkward juxtapositions and draws inspiration from little details, bike rides, improbabilities, a curious mind and an overactive imagination. Often starting with a story and ending with an image her work is a running narrative of the people and places that exist in the borderlands between reality and dreams.
