Enquire about Heather Burton

Heather specialises in palette knife work, capturing mood and movement through dramatic figurative and landscape paintings which sell through exhibitions and galleries throughout the UK.

‘There’s something very spontaneous and exhilarating about working with a knife and I’m always discovering new techniques and finishes’, says Heather. ‘I mainly use acrylics, layering and manipulating them extensively to create depth, vibrancy and texture to the work.’

Heather spends every spare minute painting in her studio in Yorkshire, fitting it in around her work as a magazine journalist, writing about homes & interiors for national publications.
