Heddys was born in China and has lived in 5 different countries. She did a science degree and taught high school. She presently lives in Sault Ste Marie with her husband and two of her four children. She first came to art through her daughter who wanted to take a workshop, but needed a companion. She enjoyed the challenge of the water medium and stayed with it. She has taken several workshops, but works mostly on her own by trial and error. She continues training with the help of fellow artists and books and workshops. She also teaches classes at the Senior Centre in Sault Ste Marie. Most of her work is landscape watercolour painting of the Algoma region, some florals and the occasional animal picture. She has exhibited in locations in Sault Ste Marie, Ontario, Sault Ste Marie, Michigan and St Joseph Island, Ontario. She won “best Watercolour” in one of the Sault Ste Marie Art Festivals.
