Heather McAlpine, born in Stirling, Scotland, moved to London to study art, achieving a BA (First Class Hons) from East London University in 1993 and an MA from the Royal College of Art in 1995. In 1999, she emigrated to Vancouver, Canada, where her paintings were inspired by the wild coastline of the Pacific Northwest and the Rocky Mountains, with their aquamarine glacial lakes, tree lines, horizons and lake and sea reflections, which informed her work.

Having moved back to the UK in 2015, she chose to live in the artistic community of St Ives, and she was drawn to the rugged beauty of the Cornish coastline, which continues to inspire her paintings. Wild swimming has also become a vital source of inspiration.
