At a very young age, Heather Drysdale was literally climbing fences to escape to the
world on the other side. To Explore and to Wonder. To follow her own creative path.
Heather formalized her talents by attending the Nova Scotia College of Art and Design.
After graduating in 1983, she formed her own company, Heather Drysdale Studios,
producing custom hand-painted fabrics, curtains and rugs. She is a self-taught
Muralist and Faux Finish Artist and has worked over 35 years as a Decorative Painter
leaving her distinguished mark in homes and businesses throughout Atlantic Canada.
She has transformed fabric, walls, furniture and floors using Stencilling, European
plaster, Marbling, Murals and Trompe l’Oeil.

Drysdale’s lifelong exploration of colour, texture and pattern has influenced her current
abstract paintings that are bold, moody and electric. She creates with childlike
abandon drawing inspiration from her visual memories gathered during her travels and
wanderings. Layers of life...

Her Abstracts have found homes in North America and Europe. Heather’s studio is
located in Middle LaHave, Nova Scotia.
