Heather McKey



Heather McKey is a traditional acrylic painter, depicting imaginary birdlife and sea creatures with unexpected and striking features.

These fanciful individuals are embellished with a variety of shells and botanicals often intermingled with feathers and patterns borrowed from nature. Strange and familiar at the same time, they are playful and exotic as they strike a pose in their world of dreamy landscapes and seascapes, peering back at their viewers with large, expressive eyes.

In each painting, there is homage to the beauty and design displayed in nature but shared through the artist's eye, giving viewers a chance to let their imaginations run wild with the unique personalities, expressions and stories layered in. Thoughtfully planned and painted with sensitive detail, Heather's hope is to connect her artworks with those who can personally identify with the soulful and realistic intrigue of her friendly creations and feel a sense of warmth and wonder.

From the onset of her debut solo gallery show with Distinction Gallery, collectors now enjoy her paintings in their homes across the world. Heather's own home is San Diego, California where she paints and raises her family with her husband, Nick.
