Heather Huston received her MFA in printmaking from the University of Alberta in 2006 and currently works as an instructor at the Alberta College of Art + Design in Calgary. She has exhibited locally, nationally and internationally and has works in several collections including the Fogg Art Museum at Harvard University and the Alberta Foundation for the Arts. She was recently selected as one of seven artists to represent Canada at the 6th International Printmaking Biennial of Douro (Portugal) and as one of ten Canadian representatives at the 2012 Taiwan International Invitational Mini-Prints Exhibition. She has won several purchase prizes for her work including at the inaugural Atlanta Print Biennial and the Brackett-Krennerich & Associates Architects Purchase Award at the 2012 Delta National Small Print Exhibition. Her work is based on miniatures, the everyday and the search for interesting structures in cookie-cutter neighbourhoods.
