My name is Heather, but I prefer to go by Grimmiechan or Grimmie. I’ve always loved drawing and want to share my creative journey with the world. I started drawing at a young age and have continued to do so ever since. I like to explore different drawing and painting techniques and continue honing my skills, both traditionally and digitally.

Other things you might want to know about me: I like to play video games. I have 2 shiba inus. I live on a lake and like to swim. My favorite colors are purple and lime green. I am also keen on black and some earth tones. I have a B.A. degree in English with a minor in Mass Communication. I currently work as a search engine marketer. I hope to one day be the best artist in the world. Just kidding, but I do strive to improve everyday.

Artistic influences/idols: Alphonse Mucha (and the entire Art Nouveau movement), Gustav Klimt, Audrey Kawasaki, Hieu (Kelogsloops), Kelsey Beckett, Lois Van Baarle (Loish), Anna Dittmann, vintage advertisements, and obviously a little bit of Anime (Neon Genesis Evangelion/FLCL were two big influences in my teens).

Tools: Copic & Prismacolor Markers, Winsor & Newton Cotman watercolor paint, Pentel Brush Pen, Liquitex Heavy Body acrylic paint, pencils of whatever sort I have at the time. These are my current preferences. I do try to dabble outside of these materials to find what I like best.
