Heighway studied art at A Level at Hailsham School and obtained a degree in Psychology and Philosophy from Cardiff University. He joined the East Sussex Fire & Rescue Service in 1997 and has been stationed at The Ridge Fire Station, Hastings, ever since.
He has continued his creative inclinations throughout this time, sketching and painting portraits of friends and family and local iconic Sussex landmarks and landscapes.
Citing the works of Picasso and Dali and the ‘raw honesty of Lucian Freud’s portraiture’ as early influences, Heighway’s portraits and landscapes are executed with bold colour and geometric form in an Art Deco stylisation: redolent of Meredith Frampton, but with echoes of Alex Katz.
Heighway is a member of Starlings, an Arts & Crafts Collective shop in Bexhill, stockists of his prints and original box canvasses for sale.
