About Heather McCartney
Heather Louise McCartney (born Heather Louise See) is the adopted daughter of Paul McCartney of The Beatles fame. McCartney is a prominent potter and designer, with exhibitions in New York City, Phoenix, Tokyo, Paris and Sydney, and has been described by Wedgewood as "one of Britain's most exciting new talents.
She was born to Linda McCartney (née Eastman) and Joseph Melville See Jr., an American geologist. Her parents divorced after only eighteen months of marriage, because her father had taken off for Africa and expected his wife and daughter to follow. Linda See refused, and sent a letter to her husband stating that she wanted a divorce. After raising her daughter on her own in New York City for several years, Linda McCartney married Paul McCartney of The Beatles in 1969, when her daughter was six years old. That same year, she was formally adopted by Paul McCartney through legal process (and prior consent from See, her biological father) and took the McCartney name. Also in 1969, McCartney appeared in the last Beatles movie, Let It Be. She has stated that although See had a lifelong influence on her, she considers Paul McCartney to be her father.
