Boozhoo, Kwey, Aaniin, my name is Heather Cabral.
I am a member of Pikwakanagan First Nation, a speaker, life and business coach, expressive arts facilitator, strategic consultant, a mixed media artist, and founder of Inspired by Nature.
In September 2022, I took my first ever art workshop. Encaustic art or creating with fire and beeswax has helped me overcome lifetimes of resistance as I learned to lovingly embrace my inner artist and all she wants to reveal. Since then, my doodles have been incorporated into my art as well. Inspired by the healing power of art, in April 2023 I launched ‘Inspired by Nature’ where I share this process of creating with intuition and self-awareness as we focus on letting go and allowing the process as opposed to the outcome or the finished product.
Through my art and workshops, I inspire participants that both art and life is about the experience and not the outcome. Like life, an art piece is not done, until it’s done and when it has taken a detour, it can be transformed with a little gentleness, self-compassion, and curiosity. My art represents my journey from self-judgement into self-love.
I am honored to share my gifts as a speaker, teacher, visionary, storyteller, and sharer of inspiration with the world. Please join me in my Strathroy 'studio by the woods' or an upcoming event as you explore your inner artist and the healing power of art, for art is medicine. If you'd like to discuss a customized program, service, speaking event, creative coaching or collaboration, please reach out. I love meeting new people and exploring possibilities!
Thank you again for visiting. I look forward to meeting you soon!
Baa maa pii,
“Heather's calm and confident energy allowed the youth to remain engaged and feel supported. Her encouraging words and demeanour made it possible for the youth participants to feel a sense of pride in their art and value their own sense of creativity and self expression. It is beautiful to be part of her workshops."
Meaghan Macleod, Youth Mental Health Supervisor, Chippewas of the Thames FN

"Since 2019, I have attended numerous events facilitated by Heather Cabral. Each one was breathtaking in uniqueness, beauty, and authenticity. Much like Heather herself. Heather has a glowing and magnetic presence, always speaking from the heart. One of her many gifts is to inspire and gather people - and this is a rare gift the world has never needed more."
