Artist profile taken from Heather's website:
Heather Midori Yamada is a Montreal visual artist and teacher who works with Japanese washi papers in paintings, collage and installations. Having begun in Toronto`s Open Studio during the 1980`s Heather primarily used washi papers in monotypes. These works explored  natural plants as imagery and actual plants imprinted.  These washi, etched &  embossed, monotype-print constructions were often marouflaged onto western paper supports. The work evolved into mixed media and collage paintings.
