Artist Q&A, The Woven Tale Press

Q&A with Heather Gorham

For the past twenty-five years, Heather Gorham has been painting and making sculpture—for this artist, the one complements the other. The painter and sculptor uses a variety of mediums including acrylic, wood, resin, and bronze. Gorham’s figurative artwork revolves around the tangible interpretation of the everyday in which she creates—with a twist—a dreamy window into common experiences. She is a self-taught painter, who branched out into sculpture, studying the art of bronze casting under artists David Illes and Martin Delabano. Her painting and sculpture have been shown in galleries across the country including Santa Fe, Napa Valley, Los Angeles, and Austin. She is represented by the Craighead-Green Gallery in Dallas and the On Center Gallery in Provincetown, Mass. She lives and works in Dallas with her husband and two shaggy dogs. See her work featured in The Woven Tale Press Vol. VII #8.

But, as the couple aged into their mid-seventies, the building became too large and the four acres of gardens required too much maintenance.
