Heather Murray is the owner & metalsmith behind Forest Emporium. Having lived in Grand Rapids, Michigan for almost her entire life, her spirit is entwined with the Great Lakes. In the summer she spends much of her time in Northern Michigan, searching for treasures along the beaches and dunes. Graduating in 2014 from Grand Valley State University with a B.A in Studio Art she was determined to make a living off her work. Today, she has been our longest standing member at The Hot Spot! She also has a passion for travels, where she continues making in hopes of sharing it with the world! Her earthly work is sold on-line as well as in our gallery. Keep tabs on her for all her shows too!
