Artist Info

Hello, I’m Heather Powers.  I live in San Antonio, Texas working as an artist and designer.  Along with illustrating for the children’s market, I’m a well-published jewelry designer and beadmaker. 

I studied painting, drawing and printmaking at Kendall College of Art & Design where I received my Bachelor of Fine Arts Degree. 

During this time, I discovered my love for printmaking, which is my medium of choice.  I love the bold lines and textures that are created through the printmaking process.  Thanks to modern technology, I use materials that allow me to work very quickly.  My work can be delivered digitally if necessary. 

I’m a dedicated member of the Society of Children’s Book Writers & Illustrators and volunteer as the Regional Advisor for the Southwest Texas Chapter.  I’ve had the privilege of taking two master classes with Tomie dePaola during the SCBWI’s national conferences.
