About me...

Hi everyone, my name is Heather Wylde and I’m an artist, and illustrator and a public speaker. I’m an official WI Speaker and I love giving my Public talks and Art Workshop.

About my talks and Art workshop...

I use power point presentations, for both my Talks and I provide my own equipment and a screen (if required).

I bring all the equipment for my Art workshop, including paper, pencils, erasers, pencil sharpeners and completed Tiger Face pictures.




I charge £60  and 35p a mile in petrol.

I live in Andover in Hampshire and I am happy to travel fifty miles in any direction, so I am able to cover Hampshire, most of Wiltshire, Dorset and Berkshire.

Art Workshop

I’ve been holding Art Workshops for a number of years. The one I’m running at the moment is great fun, and is a different way of drawing. It really doesn’t matter if you haven’t picked up a pencil in years or if you are sure you can’t draw, I can show you how to draw a Tiger’s face in less than an hour. Many people have shown me that they went on to frame their drawing or paint it!

Keep it in the Family

I’m trying to write a book about my Uncle, a brave young man who went missing in World War Two. My “Keep it in the Family” talk came about because I was struggling over the first Chapter. This is a lovely story that needs to be told. It’s completely true and backed up by records, photos and documents. The special twist in the story is quite unusual and makes the talk very different. I’ve received very encouraging feedback each time I give it, many people identifying their own wartime experiences or that of an older family member.

The Sewing Room - a ghost story!

This is a tale of mystery and intrigue, taken from my Grandmother’s recently discovered 1902 journal, when she was just twenty years old and working in service as a Dressmaker, in a large manor house in Kent.  Essentially, its a ghost story……

I was very close to my Grandmother and spent time with her whenever I could, but she never told me anything about what happened to her in the summer of 1902. Both my Father and Uncle died some time ago so I couldn’t ask them, but what I discovered in her journal was an amazing series of events, which may or may not be true.

This talk appeals to both men and women of all ages and usually ends in a few gasps. If you would like to find out what happened to my Grandmother, then you will have to hear my talk and judge for yourselves.
