Heather 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.


Day is currently preparing work for her solo show with Hashimoto Contemporary this coming May and a group show at Massachusetts Museum of Contemporary Art (MASS. MOCA). Recent group exhibitions include The Affordable Art Fair in New York City, and Part Two Gallery in Oakland.
