Heather Walsh is a lens-based artist whose creative practice is a balance between documentary and fine-art photography. For over a decade, Heather has worked as a photojournalist documenting stories about our shared humanity. Her clients include The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, NPR, and others. She is a member of Women Photograph.
During the pandemic, Heather began exploring the more shadowy parts of her life through mixed-media photography. Her diverse artistic practice transcends traditional boundaries and focuses its gaze on the resiliency of loss. As she prepared for her first fine-art photography exhibition of “Fly Over Landscapes,” at the Griffin Museum of Photography, she discovered the power of guided meditation to work through creative anxiety and access an abundance of creativity, clarity, and courage to express her unique artistic vision. Klompching Gallery recognized her project “Fly Over Landscapes” as a FRESH 2022 Finalist.
Heather’s creative practice includes university and museum teaching experience, and she is an Advocate for Creative Wellness in the photography community. She is passionate about teaching others how to find more joy and deeper meaning as image makers.
