My work arises out of an interest in deskilled process, such as stenciling and replication.  Deskilling is a core concept of the industrial revolution, but exploring stenciling within creative practice has led me to expanded definitions of drawing.The artworks on this site are labelled "drawings" but they are not created using traditional drawing methods.

"Heather's exhibition Deskilled Drawing presents light installations and non-traditional artworks that challenge us to expand our consideration of drawings—how they are made, and even how we define them."  Mary Birmingham, Curator, Visual Arts Center of New Jersey
