Life After Porn
Music and entertainment has always been a part of Hunter's life. As a child she volunteered with the Lou Rawls Parade of Stars with her mother who worked for the United Negro College Fund. But in her teenage years, she became no stranger to the streets of Harlem and Brooklyn. She formed a group called, The Sweetness Group, and played local shows and even had some studio time- this ignited her dreams of a career in the music industry. Hunter was also a gifted graffiti artist. She was picked up off the streets to make more of her life and fell into Keith Haring's art program for troubled kids and runaways. Haring's strong influence, in part, helped channel Heather's creativity, and style. As a result, she now boasts an impressive art studio in Brooklyn where she creates top selling sensual/pop-art to high net worth individuals and celebrities. A living testament, Hunter has used her rough times in childhood as fuel to her unwavering ambition for success as she comes into her own as an up-and-coming hip-hop sensation with her debut CD.
