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.
