"My work is inspired by my lived experiences, my curiosities, my moods/feelings, reflections on imagery, or text consumed, and my reflections on Black culture."
Mixed Media Artist • Chicago
Heather Polk is a collage artist based in Chicago, Illinois. She has been featured in top publications such as New York Magazine, The Washington Post, and Cosmopolitan.
Her collages are a creative space for love and connection. Her work creates new melodies out of images we have seen before, transforming fashionable figures and objects into moments of harmony. Each piece allows us to see past what life is and towards what life could be if the pieces of the puzzle were just subtly rearranged.
