Collection: Heidi McKenzie

Heidi is a Toronto-based ceramic artist. She found her true calling at 40 when her parents found an essay she had written when she was nine years old – “What I Want to Be When I Grow Up… A Potter.” She left a 20-year career in arts management and radio producing at CBC to apprentice in her father’s ancestral home at the foothills of the Himalayas in India. Heidi returned to Canada and completed her Diploma at Sheridan College in 2012 and subsequently her MFA at OCADU. In 2014/2015 the Canadian Clay and Glass Gallery Shop featured Heidi’s sculpture in a solo exhibition, ‘Clay in Motion.’ Heidi has worked internationally as an artist-in-residence in China, Indonesia, Denmark, and Australia. She is an award-winning artist whose work has been exhibited internationally including biennials in Hungary and Romania, as well as the Toronto Art Fair.
