A mixed media exploration of creative minds
Janet Heaven has enjoyed a lifelong relationship with creativity, nurtured from freedom to play on the family farm, exploring everything from playing in mud, needlework, collecting bones and creative writing. She is not conventional in her approach, having thought about studying art when leaving school, she eventually went into orthopaedic nursing, before finding her artistic voice in later life. Following a stroke in 2017 Janet’s recovery led her back to Harrogate college, where she achieved distinction in her foundation course in Art & Design and discovered conceptualism. She has not looked back and now owns her own gallery, Moorlands Gallery, in Bedale. She continues to explore the creative unconventional.
