Heather Day

Heather Day 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. Heather Day travels seeking stories of all kinds—stories behind people, places, sound, and nature—and brings them home to her Oakland studio to create an interpretation. Day chooses to communicate these interpretations through layers of overlapping paint, expressing moments at every seam, edge, and line. Each mark represents her language of dynamic motion, allowing compositions to read like handwriting—from one side to another.
