Hi, I’m Heather (she/her)
April Heather Art started 20 years ago as a mural painting business in Austin, TX in the early 90’s, and has since blossomed into a successful business for my art, illustrations, and embroidery.
Having studied Fashion + Costume Design/History at The University of Texas (class of ’93), I’ve had long fantastical love affair with historic clothing and women’s history in general. Dragging my ever-patient husband to costume exhibits across the globe is a favorite pass-time of mine : )
I believe fashion illustration should encompass all body types + skin colors. I strive to depict all types of women in my work, and am committed to fighting against traditional + stereotypical + heteronormative beauty standards through my illustrations.
My dog Twyla and I work out of my home studio in Chester County, PA. I’m married to college sweetheart (30 yrs in 2023♡) and the mom of 2 amazing young adults.
Connect with me on IG where I spend most of my social media time. (I’m learning TikTok….🤣). @aprilheatherart
Thanks for visiting my little corner of the internet~
