Heather Sink was born in the northern region of England. She has always had a passion for the arts. As an adult she worked and travelled all over Europe taking in the diverse sights and cultures of the various countries.
The subjects which draw her are vignettes of the coastal area of her beloved Beaufort, North Carolina. She also paints from her Plein Air studies created during her travels when she returns to the studio. Heather is acutely aware of moments in time and tries to bring those elements to her work. Heather feels that the emotional connection to a piece of art is personal to each viewer.
She earned her Fine Arts and Education Degree from Meredith College. Heather retired from teaching art in the North Carolina public schools and now teaches at her working studio, Craving Art Studio. Her love of teaching and travel have come to fruition, taking students to paint in Mexico, Italy and England. Visiting artists from around the US also teach at Craving Art Studio, Beaufort, NC.

Many of her works are in private collections around the world.
Heather is a board member of the Arts Council of Carteret County, as well as an artist member with the Visual Art Exchange and a member of the North Carolina Museum of Art
