Heather Littlejohns is a watercolour artist from Mumbles.
Her subject matter and inspiration are taken from the beauty of the Gower coastline and its surrounding countryside, where she walks daily, often stopping to make a quick sketch or painting before returning
to her home studio to develop her work. Her main objective is to capture the mood and spirit of a place or person.
Focusing on the ever changing light, sea, sky and coastline, she experiments with various techniques and mediums, which combine with her traditional use of
watercolour where her careful observation and depiction of breaking waves can be described as " abstract realism." Her carefully observed paintings of natural
objects such as pebbles or shells with their subtle colour changes and textures also provide the perfect subject matter for her.
Heather has had both shared and solo exhibitions in Wales and was delighted to have won 1st Prize in the Queen Street Open 2023.
