The story line


Welcome to Enchanted Paths- a site dedicated to showcasing and promoting sales of my vector images, photographs, and illustrations. I'm Heather Wimberly, freelance artist and graphic designer.



I often take my inspiration from Japanese kimono design motifs and vintage Hawaiian fabric patterns. Living in Hawaii, Visual artifacts from throughout the Pacific Rim have surrounded me from infancy. The blending of Asian, Pacific Island, and European cultures here in the Islands seems as natural as the blend of beautiful plants, animals, and people that make up a part of our environment here. I enjoy working with these themes in my vector designs, and find that they are my best sellers on and other vector sales sites online.
