Heather  René  Dunaway is an Augusta, GA native who graduated from Augusta University's Pamplin College of Arts in 2012. In her artistic path she finds inspiration from repeated patterns including those found in nature, printed fabrics, human behavior and genetics. She sees these patterns reflected in her life, family, society and outwards into the cosmos. In her recent works she has overlaid these notions utilizing predominately found or inherited nostalgic materials, such as her grandparents quilting fabric, property maps and old photographs, while also incorporating acrylic ink painting and polaroid emulsion transfers. Her works can be seen as colorful expressions often implementing repeated form and shape with multiple layers, both physical and metaphorical. She feels art is a way to study life; every piece reflecting a new discovery.
