Check out Heather Fenwick’s Artwork

Today we’d like to introduce you to Heather Fenwick.

Originally from Pennsylvania, Heather followed a whim and warm weather to San Diego in 2001, where she discovered the transformative practice of yoga. With the encouragement of Amy and Michael Caldwell, she took her first yoga teacher training in 2005. Still hungry for more knowledge, she quit her office job and traveled to India on a one-way ticket in early 2006.

During this 10-month sojourn, she learned to apply strength and softness in equal measure, while formally learning Ayurveda, Thai Massage, and the philosophies of Buddhism and Hinduism. She returned to the U.S. with an arsenal of Eastern wisdom in her heart and began teaching yoga in 2007.

Heather is a licensed acupuncturist and herbalist. She specializes in bringing a distinct alchemy of two venerable healing modalities – the practice of yoga and art of Chinese Medicine – to the yoga studio and the treatment table.

We’d love to hear more about your art. What do you do you do and why and what do you hope others will take away from your work?
I create happiness and ease on the palette of human beings, with the intention for that wellness, joy, and light to ripple out into the world.

Artists face many challenges, but what do you feel is the most pressing among them?
The challenge for artists today is that society is structured to value the bottom dollar, not the inherent and energetic value of what’s been created. I believe that the pendulum is swinging, towards compassion, towards valuing this scarce resource of creativity and true artistry.

Do you have any events or exhibitions coming up? Where would one go to see more of your work? How can people support you and your artwork?
My work includes teaching yoga (Pilgrimage Yoga, Yoga One, private lessons), treating with Traditional Chinese Medicine (acupuncture, herbs, lifestyle tune-ups), and even extends out into the human and environmental family. People can support my mission of a happier, healthier, more unified planet by being the first kind to themselves (slow down, eat well, treatchyoself), then kind to others (look into the eyes of another human or an animal, smile, offer your compassion and patience), and last but not least, kind to the planet (with 8 million tons of plastic finding its way into our ocean, wake up to the rampant single-use plastic in straws, to-go cups and food containers, and start to carry your own. 🙂
