BIO:  Heather Byrne


Heather Byrne is an emerging artist from the north coast of Northern Ireland. Her work is about reconnecting with the landscape through colour and line and the emotion of being immersed in that place.  Colours are heightened and playful to evoke childhood days … “all unchanged and changing, drawing us in and back through the years”.  


Heather had a successful career as a designer after completing her BA in Graphic Design and illustration at Birmingham Art College. She worked for several years as an Art Director for leading magazine companies in London, including Conde Nast and National Magazines and later returned to Ireland, working on newspapers in Dublin and Belfast.


She has been painting for the last three years and sells in three established galleries in Northern Ireland.


Heather has been successfully selected to show her work at Talented Art Fair, in London in March 2020, as one of 100 gallery level & award-winning artists, at one of the most successful independent art fairs in London.


She has also taken part in several local group shows and recently won a prize for innovation for her work Homeward at a local exhibition, at Flowerfield Art Centre Portstewart.
