We are proud to highlight a local artist, Heather Galea, the maker behind Modest Makings.

The Artist

Heather is a self-taught artist, who has found great clarity and serenity in studying and learning all the delicate details in nature. Through this exploration she has been inspired to paint what she sees and feels. As a mom of three young children she feels grateful to experience the world through their eyes; enjoying the sound of water, the feel of the sand, and admiring the beauty in sunsets and sunrises. This new point of view translates into her beautiful paintings. Heather loves to paint on a variety of surfaces from small & large canvases to teeny wood slices that are turned into ornaments or unique jewellery.

Wild + Free Collection

We partnered with Heather to make the ‘Wild and Free” collection, which includes various items printed with her lovely paintings of local wildflowers. The Wild + Free collection is printed on tank tops, t-shirts, and tote bags…and prints are also available to adorn your wall! We also carry a variety of her small prints of other designs – and keep an eye out for her beautiful wooden painted ornaments and jewellery for the holiday season!
