Painting with Oils

Heather Bradbury is the mum of four amazing boys, and is passionate about helping people find their creative voice.  She currently teaches painting and creative courses online and in her Gallery/Studio in the Dandenong Ranges, which she finds hugely rewarding! 


Having grown up in rural Victoria and then living in Tasmania for almost 20 years, nature and community has been a big part of her world.  

Forced to find something that gave comfort and direction after burnout, Heather fell in love with painting nature in a photo realistic way and gained recognition in a number of national art prizes. 

 

Many of her students have said painting has also changed their lives, as it did hers!
