Heather Blanton is a mid-career artist with over 20 years in the Fine Art industry. She started with a background in black and white film and printing and moved into Polaroid manipulation, then in 2013 after Polaroid quit making their SX 70 film, she moved into Sports Paintings and that has been her passion since.
After receiving a commission to do a cyclist race painting, Heather Blanton fell in love with the colours and energy of Sports paintings. She has gone on to marathons, skiing scenes, football, soccer, triathlons, swimming, surfing, sailing, golf, lacrosse and many more.
“My work is energy made manifest. The human spirit thriving on excellence only brought through competition. They are celebrations of the humans spirit and the will to win.”
