Heidi lives to dye…and dies to quilt.
Heidi Hunter runs with scissors. Shifting from an international career as a mime, she has found her voice creating visual theatre where her art studio is now the stage. There, her hands dance with fabric, and her heart sings in colour. Her stunning, award-winning art quilts will warm your walls, as do her luxurious hand-dyed wearables long to drape over your shoulders. An “artist’s artist”, Heidi is a gifted and experienced teacher, and a forever student. Driven by colour and obsessed with her love/hate relationship with the creative process, Heidi lives to dye…and dies to quilt.
I live to dye. I’m a drama queen fibre artist who left a theatre career to work full-time out of my Runs with Scissors Studio, west of Winnipeg Beach, Manitoba in Canada. After twenty years as a mime, I found my voice creating a visual oasis on my historic Prout School property. I’m driven by colour and my love/hate relationship with the creative process. I have been called an”artist’s artist”, as I am an experienced teacher, and a forever student. I offer a full roster of creative workshops out of my studio on Prout Road. http://www.runswithscissors.ca/workshops.html
Twice annually, I produce an unpronounceable weekend event called Proutopia, where my backyard turns into a boutique festival of fine craft and art.
Runs with Scissors Studio is open year round by appointment. Visit www.runswithscissors.ca for more info.
