Dyslexia is defined as a learning disorder that involves difficulty in areas such as reading due to complications identifying speech sounds and learning how they relate to letters and words. Local artist, Heather Davis sees dyslexia very differently. She feels that dyslexia can be used as a gift and can augment creativity. Heather grew up in Newtown Square, Pennsylvania and attended Rhode Island School of Design from which she graduated with a Bachelor of Fine Arts in painting. Post-graduation, Heather was a hands-on craftsman leaving a trail of murals, mosaics, and other sculptural elements in her renovation jobs throughout the greater Philadelphia and Main Line area. In 2013, after a life-changing experience, she gave it all up to paint full-time and immediately emerged as an award-winning artist in the prestigious Brandywine Valley.
In recent years, Heather relocated to beautiful Bedford County, Pennsylvania where generations of her family are from. Join her at Ligonier to hear her discuss
her process and experience as an artist.
