A Pop-up shop in Tiverton

October 14, 2013

Several Artisans, myself included, are selling paintings, bags, jewellery, upcycled furniture, ceramics and more at A Coopera TIV opposite Boots. This is part of the Mary Portas empty shop initiative. We are a lot more interesting than an empty shop so do drop by if you’re in the area. There are different artisans every week so the shop is constantly changing. If you see something you like, don’t think about it, if you like it, buy it because it could […]

Affordable Art Fair Bristol

April 27, 2013

Straight up on the train and into the Art Fair. It was fantastic and I spent a very happy 5 hours there immersed in extraordinary and wonderful paintings. The gallery owners were delightful and I had many interesting conversations. I had enjoyed my first art fair at Islington earlier this year, but the Bristol one was even more to my liking. I guess because there were lovely West Country scenes, more realism and less of the abstract. A great atmosphere […]

When I changed tack in my career from […]

Glos Gallery Exeter Painting Heatherbell Barlow Tide out MouseholeEnlarge

January and I am full of resolutions to build on my relationship with galleries. Last year was really busy with 18 exhibitions under my belt. I have met so many wonderful artists in Devon and being part of various organisations like Devon Artist Network, Tiverton Art Society and North Devon Arts has afforded me opportunities I would never otherwise have found. All these networks are run by wonderful volunteers who give their time so freely. I am full of admiration […]

  • About Heatherbell

    I am inspired by beautiful landscape. I love Devon, where I live, but it was on the Isles of Scilly, I found the smallest gap between Heaven and Earth: These lovely unspoilt islands have defined me as an Artist, painting colourful and thoughtful landscapes, transforming changing skies and shifting tides on to canvas. It is here I try to unravel my relationship with nature and capture the essence of a special place. If you have a special place you would like painted, or if you would like to buy an existing painting or a signed mounted print, please contact me I'd love to hear from you.
