Heidi's obsession with nature began at an early age. With an active imagination, she spent her younger days sketching animals and creatures from her imagination. Now, in her twenties, Heidi has applied every artistic skill and talent she has gathered over the years; turning the figments of her imagination into tangible, touchable art. Every creature represents an amalgamation of her artistic pursuits, including graphic design, sculpture, painting, faux taxidermy, textile work, and biological anatomy.

Each creature is constructed with a skeleton of flexible, fully poseable armeture wire. The body is soft-sculpted using foam and synthetic filling, giving it a realistic, malleable feel. The face is uniquely hand-sculpted, painted and paintstakingly covered in fur. When finished, these creatures seem to take on a life of their own; taking to any form you place them in. But above all, there is no limit to what the imagination can bring to life.

Riker Creatures Interview - A Peek Into My Life

Journal Entry: Sat Nov 7, 2015, 6:12 AM


An introspective Q&A session with Last Laugh Magazine editor Sarah Barker. I was honored to be included in her spectacular summer issue! If you ever wanted to get a closer peek at what inspires me and how I started this career, take a look!


The full issue requires a log-in due to some artistically explicit content, so I have made the solo article available here:
