Heidi Favour grew up on a farm in North Dakota and learned to appreciate hard work, old tools, and the beauty of simple things. She collects old bits of stuff – cast-off tools, old wood, useless pieces of hardware, anything with type or numbers on it. She likes the imagined history of the objects, the quality materials and craftsmanship, the oddity of certain things. When inspiration hits, Heidi reassembles things in a new way to make objects people can use again.
At Venue this month, Heidi will be introducing her assemblages, as well as showcasing a wonderful collection of collage prints. She has a BFA with a focus in Graphic Design, and lives in Seattle with her husband, 2 daughters and one angry cat.
