The art of paper filigree or quilling is ancient, but Allard is bringing it into the present with bold colors and modern inspirations.
Quote from Heather Allard: “The colors and shapes in my garden and changes of the seasons foster creative ideas to incorporate with the rich colors of the paper on my work table. I have found quilling to be extremely therapeutic and the repetitive nature of this artistic process is soothing to my soul”.
