Heather Keenan’s recent work is a narrative on imagined places of gathering; railway stations, streets and landscapes. The figures are at a nexus point, either beginning or ending their passage into or from a place of light. The work is in an impressionistic, automatic style using oil pigment sticks, (oil paint, linseed oil and waxes in stick form) which enable her to draw and paint using her hands, rags and scrapers to erase and build layers.
Heather received a Diploma in Art and Design at Grant MacEwan University in Edmonton, Alberta. Her artwork is on the covers of over 20 books and publications, she received a BC Arts Council Award, Best in Show at Sooke Fine Arts and the Windsor & Newton North American Artist's Competition.
