ABOUT HEATHER

Heather Blacklock (also known as Hacklock) is an emerging Brisbane artist who explores a variety of mediums, with a focus on illustration, painting and ceramics. A love of colour, texture, detail and the use of her hands has led, over and over, to visual arts. She’s inspired to find the special nature in everyday things, to both appreciate and think critically about the world she inhabits.
