Heather K. Powers – the creative organizer. Curiosity + Collaboration + Integrity inspire me to find creative solutions to balance Form + Function.
Why I LOVE ORGANIZING-I lose track of time, reveling in both the process and end results of creating organized spaces.
An MA in Critical Craft at Warren Wilson and BFA in Fibers at Savannah College of Art and Design prepared me for design, research, and collaboration. I am deeply inspired by visual and material culture; the objects we collect, the spaces we create, how we sense them, and how they inform our identities. My creative projects and research are guided by both a process-oriented and intuitive approach.
I am avidly curious about how organizing, productivity, and creativity go hand in hand. This curiosity led me to interview over fifty artists on the topic. My research investigates the representation of artists’ identity through the spaces and objects they craft. I write, consult and teach across a range of topics and serve on the board of a creative nonprofit working to promote the art and history of natural Indigo.
My methodology uses collaboration and observation to bring a sense of purpose to our work. I would love to opportunity to help you create a personalized organizing system, either in person or through virtual organizing services, at home, or in your business or research.
Less juggle, more joy!

Nature grounds me. By nurturing the earth we build fertile grounds for all our creations-both beauty and function. The beehive symbolizes passion, creativity, curiosity, collaboration, and organization, which are what I consider essential to savor the sweetness of life. Bees nurture one another and collaborate to create a global community!
Community-I have a deep desire to connect with people. I have come to learn from and know so many diverse and wonderful people through community (volunteer) projects. I believe Black Lives matter, I believe that until we are all free, no one is free. I am continuing to learn to see things from other perspectives. This helps me cultivate more compassion and engagement with ideas and people that are different than me.
Through photography, I can hone in on details or view things from a wide perspective. Most of the photography on my site is my own, please email me if you’re interested in sharing any of it.
Dance-I move my body to all kinds of music! I’ve learned to judge myself less and to allow myself to play in the delicious transformative feeling of movement!
