Heidi Favour / Heidi Favour Designs - Seattle
Mixed Media objects
Heidi Favour loves collecting old bits of stuff – cast-off tools, useless pieces of hardware, old wood, and anything with type or numbers on it. She likes the imagined history of the objects, the quality and craftsmanship of the materials, the oddity of certain things. When inspiration hits, she reassembles things in a new way to make objects people can use again. The process gives her real joy. And it gives her an excuse for collecting things. If she didn’t make art with the things she collects, she might be considered a hoarder.
Heidi grew up on a farm in North Dakota, where she learned to appreciate hard work, old tools, and the beauty of simple things. She has a BFA with a focus in Graphic Design, and lives in Seattle with her husband, 2 daughters and one angry cat.
