Hello and welcome! Croeso!

Hi! I’m Heidi Plant. I’m a multidisciplinary artist and a lover of colours. I draw and paint. I make art that crosses process and media.

I live in a big field in West Wales with my family.

We organically collaborate on artworks together. I get inspired by what they are making and they get inspired by what I’m making.

It’s an interesting, joyful, creative soup.

We live here:

We built our house in lockdown with our own sweet hands.

It’s my dream house.

It has no inside walls or doors which is a challenge at times.

Eventually we’ll build another house (with walls and doors!) and this one will become the studio.

We have 4 goats, a cockerel and 3 hens, 2 dogs and a cat.

I love being quiet and still in nature. We’ve planted around 300 trees here. They are tiny at the moment. I like that they’ll still be around, reaching their full height, long after I’ve left this earth.

Latest Artworks…

Y Llyfr Braslunio, short film, 2023

Recently I‘ve been making short films about a character called Sunday. My alter ego.

I’ve just started learning Welsh. I filmed them in the Welsh language to strengthen personal feelings of connection to the land and place whilst this simultaneously creates a separation and disconnection to the outside world.

Creating an alter ego is incredibly freeing. The work exists in a dreamlike space where everyday structures become disjointed but the story remains relatable.
