About The Artist

Heidi McKenzie

Heidi McKenzie 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 to apprentice in her father’s ancestral home at the foothills of the Himalayas in India. Heidi returned to Canada, completed her Diploma at Sheridan College in 2012 and her MFA at OCADU. Heidi has worked internationally as an artist-in-residence in China, Indonesia, Denmark, Hungary and Australia.
