About Heather Kennedy

I have been a registered nurse since 2018. This means I have a passion for people and recently been focusing my art on portraits. In summer 2019 I was judges commended on my self portrait in the Ruth Borchard award. I try to experiment with various materials however mostly I use watercolours, gouache and pencil to create my portraits.


I have an a level in art and design but made the decision to pursue nursing rather than art for university, meaning I am a self taught artist.

Was part of the Ruth Borchard 2019 Self Portrait Prize exhibition where my portrait received Judges commended. I’m hoping to enter this competition again for the 2021 prize.
