Self-directed residencies & retreats now available!
All artists who utilize Kestrel Fields Studio will be treated with professional service and personalized support! Above all, we are here to make you feel welcome. We can also provide impromptu art advice or constructive feedback on your work, a spare set of hands, or even the occasional baked good. :)
We offer experienced, professional coaching services to any artist or creative person who is looking for career or personal development, advice, hacks, art critique, structure, or accountability. We especially want to witness you as you achieve your goals!
Heather Matthews is the founder and owner of Kestrel Fields Studio & Art Residency. She earned a B.S in (wait for it...!) German Languages & Literatures (Sprechen Sie Deutsch?), a BFA in Studio Art (Fibers), and an M.Ed in Counseling & Career Development. Before Kestrel Fields Studio & Art Residency was a thing, she worked for 14 years at Colorado State University as an academic advisor and career counselor.
$50 for a 1-hour session. We can meet in-person in Fort Collins, Colorado, or via online video.
We believe in making an impact in a short period of time. We are action-oriented and aim to help you see results or solutions as soon as possible.
"Heather helped me to dive deeper into the details of my idea. Her art and business knowledge is wide, which offers breadth of perspective. She provides a wide-angle view when it comes to problem-solving and strategy. She asked me the right questions and kept our conversation moving along to a satisfying conclusion. Plus, it was fun!"
