My name is Heather Roach and I am a sophomore Painting and Drawing BFA at Tyler School of Art in Philadelphia. My art focuses on making sense of the world and people around me through art, either by distortion, simplification or intense realism. I use linework as a way to further simplify and abstract the human form and I use realism to show complexity. My creative process is greatly impacted by the people and nature that surrounds me and I believe that collaboration is key to how I create. I believe that all artwork connects us and by creating I feel closer to the people, nature and world that I document.
The art I create is an investigation of reality and the bonds that tie humanity, myself and nature together.
