The best way to predict your future is to create it – Abraham Lincoln
Heather Gartside was raised in the English countryside but has travelled, worked and lived all over the world. After an art college education, her career blossomed when she moved to Paris, and an appreciative France catapulted her to fame and fortune creating decoration for The Conran Shop, and subsequently Louis Vuitton stores worldwide. Heather’s eclectic career touches on many different disciplines: as a writer, a photographer, teacher, and artist/designer. She strives to “smudge the edges” in her work and brings painterly and biographical elements into her prose, and a tinkling lyricism to her images. Heather currently lives with her family in Denmark and is working on her second novel, Into The Middle Distance. Once again she crosses disciplines, combining photographic images with magical realism – and a touch of sea salt!
