Brushing Nature’s Serenity: Heather Bacon

Come and visit us at Fair Trader and see Heather Bacon, Brushing Nature’s Serenity.

Originally hailing from the picturesque county of Cornwall. Heather has called Yorkshire home for over four decades, with the charming village of Almondbury being her residence for the past six years. Her journey as an artist has been a lifelong passion. One that she had never pursued professionally until her well-deserved retirement. Retirement, for Heather, has opened up a world of artistic exploration. It has also given her the precious opportunity to focus on the subjects that have provided her with solace and inspiration throughout her life: her own garden and the enchanting world of wildflowers.

During the challenging period of the Covid-19 pandemic, Heather found solace and inspiration. It was closer to home, within the confines of the Woodsome Valley. The restrictions imposed on her mobility became a blessing in disguise. Ultimately forcing her to explore and appreciate the natural beauty that was right on her doorstep. It was during this time that her passion for painting truly flourished.

Heather’s artistic endeavours span a wide spectrum. With both watercolour and oil paint being her mediums of choice. Her artwork is imbued with a profound love for the natural world that surrounds her. With a particular emphasis on the delicate beauty of wildflowers. Her paintings capture not only the vibrant colours and intricate details of these blossoms but also the sense of serenity and tranquility that emanates from her work.
