Heather Jansch’s Diary: A Life in the Year of…”
By Heather Jansch
Heather’s driftwood horses, warrior women, dancers and other sculptures from found and recycled materials, are incredibly dynamic and vital. They have real, living presence – she captures their movement and character perfectly, with profound understanding of her subject and materials. I have a fascinating time at her open studios, helping to look after visitors – it’s wonderful to see people so inspired and energised, having spent time amongst her work, in her beautiful sculpture gardens and bluebell woodlands – a magical Devon valley! This beautiful and unusual book shares Heather’s amazing energy and is a fascinating insight into the creative life of a passionate artist. Vanessa
“…a visual feast”
“As rich and inventive as her sculpture, Heather Jansch’s Diary takes the reader straight to the heart of her creative life. A compulsive page-turner, full of stunning images, it is a perfect gift.”
An astonishing transformation took place as the horse sculpture came alive with great force.
In any given moment the answer to your problem is staring you in the face – if only you can see it.
To bring something into existence from thin air is pure oxygen.
When the creative flow is running, my energy is boundless, everything around me seems to vibrate with potential.
When the creative flow is running… all is magical.
When the muse is on my shoulder I have to follow her fast. To deny the muse is to deny life!
To wake in the morning with an idea burning bright inside is the best of all possible worlds.
