Heather Rigby is an Interdisciplinary artist working in the interstices between environment, culture and art. Her work connects the geography of the land with the collective imagination of the local and extended communities by means of site-specific installations and social media. 

Based in Claremont, Ontario, Heather gained her Master’s degree in Visual Art with further research in Cultural/Environmental Studies, at York University. Her more unconventional explorations include studies at Dai Towku Ji Monastery in Kyoto, Japan and investigations into eastern philosophies in Sikhim and Tibet. Her current art making explores the power of symbol through land art (including large-scale field drawings), videography and installation. Her teaching career has ranged from Colleges and Universities in Ontario and Nunavut. She has exhibited her work in Canada and Italy.
