My name is Heather.
Artist. Photographer. Explorer. Nature lover. Anti coal activist. Bone collector.

I spend my time exploring and studying the Appalachian Mountains. A vast region, often overlooked, but home to some of the most beautiful and lush forests in the world. I am in love with the wilderness, it is my home, my peace, and what keeps me sane. I make my living as an artist, selling jewelry and other creations. I live a very free lifestyle... outside the lines society has drawn for us. THIS is the society that I love and respect.

Things I've Created
My poor little Daring Jumping Spider. My heart is broken over it. I had this little beautiful spider for over a year. She’s been such a wonderful little creature to have around. I can’t believe she’s gone. I tried every way in the world to save her, I even set her free in one of my pots… but she was too weak. She managed to crawl onto the plant, actually made it out of her tank. I guess that took all the energy she had left, because she couldn’t even hang onto the plant. I put her in a stable spot, she crawled off, fell. I left her alone, hoping she would make it. I came back the next day to find her still in the same spot, and so lifeless. It was out of my hands, it’s simply the course of nature. This photo was taken a few minutes before she died. ): Her last photo, and a pretty one indeed. I just can’t describe the sadness I feel for this little creature. I cared for it for so long, watched the stages of it’s life, and just like that, it’s over. I love all my animals greatly, no matter how small.
