Ann Hord-Heatherley, figurative art at Out In Jupiter Farm
I am a mixed-media figurative artist, but I mostly work in cloth. I favor hand-dyed and vintage textiles and the hair on my figures is from the angora goats on my farm. The goal in my work is to capture emotion so I often think of places and times from my own life…..the restlessness I felt as a girl growing up in the rural south, and the questions and self-doubt I faced as I grew away from that place. While the pieces are created from my story, I find they often remind people of their own.
