Art Therapy: Painting Water and Seascapes

For Heather McQueen Jones, art started as therapy when she was caring for her young children. It quickly grew into a passion and gradually Heather moved further from her advertising career to focus on her art.

 In Heather’s own words, “Sketching and painting is cathartic. Learning something new every day is energizing. Challenging myself to take art to the next level and change careers has been transformative.”

Heather paints in oil, plein air and from her studio on Daniel Island; she paints what she loves to see, what is around her either near her home or while vacationing. She does commissioned work and donates paintings for Lowcountry charities.

On September 19, Heather will demonstrate the method she uses to share the progress of her painting and posting to social media. To view Heather’s beautiful art, please visit her website Instagram @HeartPalette and

Today, Mary enjoys combining her love of the portrait and figure with painting Plein Air landscapes. She travels and paints Plein Air Paint-outs all over the United States.  Her work is documented on her website,
