Ganz identifies a strong Japanese influence in her work, even though she grew up in several countries. During her BFA studies at Indiana University Bloomington she explored various media, from ceramics to printmaking, before determining sculpture and welding as her expressive vehicles of choice. She met and married her husband Christopher Ganz, artist and professor in print-making, during her time in Bloomington. Between 2002 and 2012 she taught design and drawing courses at Indiana University-Purdue University Fort Wayne (IPFW). She has been living and working in Indiana for 15 years.

Heather Miller works at Mental Health America of Northeast Indiana where she develops services for schools so that teachers and parents can understand the challenges that trauma and mental illnesses place on students and their ability to learn. Previously, she worked at a Montessori school as the art specialist. In that position, she used the arts and the creative process to help students gain confidence in their ability to express their own thoughts. She also used the creative process to coach students to think logically and progressively through solving challenges by taking risks and testing solutions. Heather makes art for personal healing and expression. She enjoys making art that stimulates wonder about the self and how we as individuals fit within the whole.
