“What happens when I slow down my process with a stitch or speed it up with a paint roller? Time affects the depth of the paint and determines whether it translates as a place, object, or portrait.” — Heather Day

About the Artist

618ab09c 0523 411d ac1b 0bc692c928ce

Heather Day (b. 1989) is an artist living and working in the San Francisco Bay Area. Day grew up in Hawaii and along the east coast of the United States, finally moving to San Francisco after graduating from Maryland Institute College of Art with a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in painting and art history. Her background in travel and culture encouraged her to see more of the world, where she discovered a connection to nature—her main source of inspiration. Day’s art is a form of visual storytelling interested in conveying moments of interactions. She works primarily with paint and non-traditional materials, and is known for her murals. The philosophy that everything is a product of an experience frames each work, conveying stories of movement and ideas of color through seams, lines, and layers.
