"As a clairsentient, one with the psychic gift and ability to intuit information through clear feeling, I believe I have a duty to provide people with a way to heal. I create acrylic paintings on canvas. Each painting is a message of love. As an artist, my medium is spiritual energy as much as it is the paint with which I create.
I may meditate over a photograph of a person, hold an object, or have a conversation with someone by phone or in person. Once I do this, my spirit guide, the Holy Sprit, informs me with messages about the spiritual energy and wellness of the person for whom I am creating. The messages are always related to colors that are connected to the color energies of the 7 Chakras of the body: the root (which is the base of the spine), the Sacral, the navel, the heart, the throat, the third-eye, and the crown. Colors that come out on the canvas can represent a variety of things about that person such as areas where they may need healing, rebalancing and support and can also serve as a visual representation of who they are in color; their essence and energy and sometimes their aura. I often intuit symbols and patterns as well. Some of my paintings express spiritual energy that is not centered around a specific person but rather a spiritual theme or idea.
Every piece I create has an element of love. I believe my purpose is to learn to love myself and others unconditionally. " - Heather Eck
Over the course of her lifetime, Heather Eck has answered the calling to nurture and instill joy in those around her. As a clairsentient, one with the psychic gift and ability to intuit information through clear feeling, she is drawn to connect with people, helping them heal, feel joy, and to live in their truth, all of which brings much of the same to Heather since acknowledging her purpose-driven role of artist.
From childhood, Heather formed a deep love for doodling and sketching and had an innate ability to see and sense the world through color. Her tendencies for forming human bonds and connections naturally swayed her into career positions in which she served as both guide and counselor. With a degree in Human Resources, Heather flourished in her HR roles in the corporate world, even earning a certificate in International Coaching. From one position to the next, the recurring patterns of opportunity to bring joy and comfort served as a sign of things to come, but also left Heather unfulfilled. She sought ways to express herself creatively; playing guitar in coffee shops, writing poetry, and participating in open mics. While Heather enjoyed these outlets, they were devoid of deeper meaning and not enough to counter balance the uniformity and restrictive paradigms, from clothing to language, that she felt.
With their young son, and hoping to exchange the pace of New York and New Jersey, Heather and her husband moved to North Carolina in 2014. She took an HR management position with Epic Games. There, surrounded by creatives, and like the jobs that preceded, being close to creatives and creativity served as “a cheat” for her own creative fulfillment. It wasn’t until Heather’s friend and spiritual teacher Myrna opened dialogue about path and purpose with Heather, telling her “...you’re an artist, art is your gift” that Heather would awaken to the idea of serving others through art. That same day, Heather embraced it, bought art supplies, and let the metaphoric “steam out” to begin her work.
Today, as a dedicated, full-time artist, Heather engages with clients and viewers alike in deep and meaningful ways through her art. Her colorful canvas paintings connect by color meaning to the 7 Chakras of the body and are created from messages which she intuits from her own spirit guide about the person for whom she creates. For the receiver, the paintings are powerful, guidance about spiritual areas that require healing and light, while they can also serve as a type of portrait of one’s spiritual energy. Many of her paintings are also more loosely about spiritual awakening and themed expressions of spiritual thought.
Heather lives in Holly Springs with her husband and son. She creates commissioned paintings and exhibits in venues around North Carolina.
