Heather Mitchell demonstrates colored pencil and scratchboard drawings.

Heather Mitchell grew up in Hawaii, and spent several years in California before moving to the Gulf Coast. Living most of her life near the water, she appreciates the beautiful natural environment of Pensacola. She draws much of her inspiration from the local wildlife, pets and people. 

Formerly an art director in publishing and advertising, Heather has worked in art education as well as teaching private lessons. She has recently returned to her love of drawing, working primarily in colored pencil and scratchboard. 

 Heather is represented by Blue Skies Gallery in Long Beach, Mississippi, and Creative Art Treasures Studio in Mobile, Alabama. She is an exhibiting member of the Eastern Shore Art Center in Fairhope, Alabama; the Gulf Coast Arts Alliance in Gulf Shores, Alabama; and the Art and Design Society in Fort Walton Beach, Florida. She has won several regional awards for her artwork.
