About the Instructor
Heather Wright is a Southeast Minnesota transplant from the Iron Range, getting her BFA from UMD and interning at the Tweed Museum of Art, where one of her clay pieces is in the collection.
She sat on the Arrowhead Regional Arts Council for a term and a half while parenting two daughters, later adding one more, and working in fiber arts.
Wright is a past president of the Range Fiberart Guild, and a past curator of the MN Federation of Weavers & Fiber Artists Annual Exhibition.
Currently a professional florist in Rochester (at Tulips & Truffles), Wright is enjoying a return to drawing and illustration with a new emphasis on watercolor. Her imagery is inspired by botany, micro landscapes, medical and space sciences, pagan lore, textile design, abstract expressionism, Orphism, cubism, and figure study.
