Heather Sundquist Hall is an illustrator based in Smithville, Texas. She grew up on Long Island in New York before moving to Philadelphia to pursue a BFA in Fine art. After a decade in Philly, as Art teacher and Montessori guide, she hightailed it for Texas where she has been since 2012. Heather's freelance work has been featured in numerous publications in the Austin area and beyond. Her personal art has been exhibited in galleries in Texas, Philadelphia, Los Angeles, San Francisco and Portland.
Heather's paintings are heavily drawn from memories, nostalgia and stories. Much of the focus in Heather's work is on the details or the quiet aspects of the day (or night). It's the subtle shift in light at sunset she pays homage to, or even the kind of plaid a couch was that was in her grandmother's house in 1986. These, often overlooked details, become characters in her stories and illuminate memories through new eyes. Her artwork is also an attempt to honor what has been forgotten. Whether it's the authentic parts or her own perception - painting is a cathartic release that brings new light to the past and allows for intention and reflection for what is ahead.
