Heather Tobias

I had the choice when leaving school of going to Art College or Drama School. I chose drama and that became my career but art has always been a major part of my life. At 60 I went to Bucks New University where I went on to get a BA [Hons] Degree in Fine Art.

I now have my own studio and am part of a collective of artists at Skylark Galleries at Gabriel’s Wharf on London’s South Bank.

I take inspiration from the past. I then create characters who might appear historical in their reference but are in essence of our time. I mainly choose to work with porcelain and oxides. The results are unexpected and the magic of happenstance occurs.
