Heather Waugh Pitts - 10 Questions for Artists

I can't remember how I found Heather on Instagram...one of those scroll-read-follow comment-bread crumb trails I suspect. When you see her work though, that scroll STOPS. Unlike anything else being created right now, mainly black and white with series names like Raw Like Bone, is it any wonder I became a fan? An interior designer, photographer, painter, ceramicist, Heather is also renovating a huge former private school into her main residence. A stark black and white palette with natural materials, antlers, dried botanicals, branches mixed with antiques, I'd liken her as the perfect combination of Martha Stewart, Joanna Gaines and Leanne Ford.  Heather's aesthetic is so on point, she creates magic with whatever she touches. I want to be her when I grow up!
