HEATHER D’SILVA After a career in the Textile Industry, I turned my attention to painting and printmaking. I have exhibited at the Royal Overseas League, The Michael Hesseltine Gallery and the Mill Arts Centre at Banbury to name but a few, and in the past have been a regular participant in Bucks Open studios. My paintings have sold in the UK as well as in America and I continue to find real inspiration in the visual delights of nature and the countryside
