This was a bespoke, framed artwork created for Heidi Herkes in honour of her incredible ongoing and empowering commitment to helping women.
Years ago, Heidi suffered a life changing accident which left her paralysed from the chest down. Not only did it have a catastrophic effect on her life as it once was, but she was faced daily with difficulties of not being able to express herself as the woman she once was. As Heidi explains;
"This forced me to examine style from the point of view of not having the perfect physique, posture or appearance and still wanting to look and feel amazing. I soon realised that despite the accident, this was something that resonated deeply with me and was something i wanted to pursue. My inspiration was the ability to embrace individuality and diversity and all the things that makes us different instead of trying to fit into the mainstream.
After studying extensively, Heidi Herkes Style Consultancy came to light and I launched the company to help women from all different backgrounds, all different shapes, sizes and personalities discover who they really are".
This painting is a celebration of Heidi's determination, endurance and incredible ability to help others who share the same struggles.
