Heidi's beadwork is an expression of herself, and her feelings for Mother Earth and the creatures upon her. She started working in beads in 1975 and remembers making jewelry as a child.
She has won numerous design awards, has written several articles on beadwork technique and is currently writing a book on Bead Embroidery.
Heidi currently lives "off the grid" in the Colorado Rockies with her husband Gregg, and son Ben.
