We continue to post short features on the participating artists from our Jamaica Biennial 2017 archives:
Heather Sutherland Wade was born in 1948, in Manchester, Jamaica. Sutherland-Wade attended the Alberta College of Art in Canada. A graphic designer and a fine artist, she has been exhibiting extensively since the 1970s in Jamaica, Canada, Barbados and China. Sutherland-Wade states that her motivation to paint comes from the beauty of God’s creation around her, which she captures in patterned, colourful semi-abstracts. She lives in St Andrew, Jamaica.
