Heather Ross is known for her natural aesthetic, inspired both by her West Coast upbringing and her time spent living and antiquing in Paris. Her artfully curated boutique has earned a loyal following since opening in Vancouver in 2001. A creative force-of-nature with a background in painting, printmaking, ceramics and textile design, Heather is also recognized for her work as a writer, stylist and photographer in many top lifestyle magazines, and her evocative artworks have been placed in numerous feature films and international collections. When not involved in her many creative projects, she enjoys cooking, gardening, beachcombing and treasure hunting. A true animal lover, she cares deeply about all creatures great and small. This is her first book.
"Beachcombers and collectors, rejoice! The Natural Eclectic, by artist, collector, and stylist, Heather Ross, is your new go-to guide for incorporating seaside and flea-market finds in your home."--Martha Stewart Living Magazine "In her new book, The Natural Eclectic, West Coast artist Heather Ross brings a nature-inspired esthetic into the home with palette drawn from the sea and a penchant for all things organic."--Chatelaine "Her first book offers tips for consciously curating natural mementos and styling found objects, turning the old and everyday into something special. With a fine arts background and thriving art practice, she has a take on earthly decor that's subtle and serene."--House and Home Magazine "It has a very different format and feel to it than most interior design books, in a good way. It feels fresh and unique and almost as if Heather has just poured all her years of inspiration and experience onto the pages without restraint."--91 Magazine "And that's what Ross wanted to share through her book, to show people that beauty can be powerful and evocative, something you feel on a spiritual level. The Natural Eclectic isn't about decorating or styling, or what to do in your next renovation. It's a way of life."--West Coast Homes and Design Magazine
