Hello! My name is Heather Beard! I am a graduate of the University of Memphis; I have my BFA in Fine Art with a concentration in Graphic Design and a minor in Art History! I married the love of my life June 2015, and we live in Mississippi with our cat, Mandy. I love to write and tell stories when I'm not making art. My hope for the future is to have my own business. I hope to help people who struggle with depression, anxiety, and self-harm as I struggle with those myself. I hope to be a light to others and help them through their darkest hours. Hope IS real, and YOU matter!
