Early in life, Heather Duncan enjoyed coloring and drawing. She went on to attend the University of Delaware in Newark to study fashion design, illustration, drawing, and sewing. Heather later returned to fine art and moved away from the northeast. She taught herself techniques from every style of painting and now paints in the range of abstraction to traditional realism. When studying fashion, she learned to follow trends to determine what was current and now applies this to her artistry.
