Heather LaPeer

My name is Heather, I have been drawing since I was little.  At first my attention was to little girl's fantasies of unicorns and princesses, but as I grew, my horizons widened. Middle School and early High School I was fascinated by dragons and warriors and battles and magic.  I had no actual art training before entering art school, and it was by the skin of my teeth and on talent alone that I made it in (in my opinion) I learned everything I knew then out of books, and did I have a lot of books.  Now I have some great foundations under me, and I am ready to try some fantasy work again. While my interest in fantasy has changed toward the darker elements now, vampires and werewolves, beansidhe and gouls (and not the sissy twilight versions, no offense intended) I have decided to do a few more mermaid pieces in tribute to my old work, and in order to compare.  I also have 3 mermaid commissions to work on, so get ready for some new stuff coming eventually. Favourite movies T.V. - Hercules and Andromeda on SciFi, Movies - Reign of Fire, Day After Tomorrow, AI, I Robot, etc. Favourite books Love Pern novels by Anne McCaffrey, Mars Diarys, Philippa Gregory, TAMORA PIERCE!!!, etc...
