Heidi Nisbett was born in Ohio in 1993 and grew up in Boiling Springs, South Carolina. She has always had the desire to create, showing a passion for art and drawing at a young age. She pursued this passion through high school and went on to receive her BFA in painting and printmaking from Winthrop University in 2015 and moved to Charlotte, North Carolina about two years later. In her adult life she started to find peace and clarity in the outdoors, taking weekly hikes with her energetic dog, Junie. Before long, this hobby became an obsession and she ventured into the world of backpacking, constantly looking forward to her next overnighter in the mountains. In 2018 she made the decision to attempt a thru hike of the famed Appalachian Trail, a 2,000+ mile trail extending from Georgia to Maine. She started this hike on March 10, 2018, carrying her belongings on her back and filling sketchbooks to preserve the priceless memories. She finished her hike on September 5, 2018 at Mount Katahdin in Maine. She currently works at Blue Blaze Brewing Co. and resides in Charlotte, NC.
