About the Artist

Heather A. Mitchell

Meet the Artist




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 graphite. 

 

Heather is an exhibiting member at Quayside Gallery in downtown Pensacola, Florida and 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.
