About the Artist:
Heather Thornton is a Charleston-based artist currently working in the format of mixed media and collage.

The shifting of needs as we gather life experiences and develop as people bring nuanced changes in ourselves over time. Figurative collages of built up paper clippings mirror the compilation of these experiences. The works interpret feelings surrounding the ebb and flow of self-image, from coming to terms with depression, body image and a shared intimacy with loved ones.
