Blog Tour Week #6 - Heather Haymart

It is apropos that my Book is visiting Heather's blog this week. You know my last post, the one with pics from my Stratalicious class? Well, the Rose that I mention is Heather's mom, the creative genius behind Wood Icing. Genius spawns Genius because it was way back in 2003 that Heather got the idea of using her mother's product in her own Fine Art. Can you say brilliant!?!

Heather and I have been friends and comrades on the Art Fair circuit for a number of years, so it was a no-brainer that I wanted Heather to be in my book. I was thrilled when she accepted, contributing a lovely piece and also a simple fresh recipe. And I am also glad she is hosting the Book on Tour this week.

Over the years, Heather's use of Wood Icing in her work has really changed, here is one of her very first pieces.

And, from last year, Crazy Thoughts (below), is a newer piece, also one of my all time faves.

You can see more of Heather's work on her website where you can view galleries through the years - it is so interesting to see how she has progressed as an artist. And guess what? Heather also sells on Etsy where you will find original artwork and reproductions. 

And ok, ok, you are wondering about the give away already, aren't you? Well you have to know it's Wood Icing. Yep. Wood Icing and some of my stencils, pretty sweet if I do say so myself. Click on over to Heather's BLOG to see details and enter for the giveaway. 
And, if you can't wait and just want to buy some Wood Icing and stencils, you can always find them on Stencil Girl Products.


  1. Wow, these are waaaay cool. I'm inspired to start another painting. Sure, I understand that everyone is entitled to their own opinion, their own preference, but I just can't fathom a painting without TEXTURE !!

  2. Hi, MB!! Thanks for the comments on my blog! Yes, the bracelets and copper/brass pendants will be coming to Artfest. Also, the (weird-like me!) greeting cards and a bunch of odd new dolls. I can't wait to see you!!
