California-based artist Heather Day makes abstract paintings that are informed by sensory interpretations bridging the thoughts between what is known and how it is felt. Shifting between traveling and working in her studio, Day creates pieces that represent both profound and mundane situations. Her encompassing murals, spacious canvas paintings and intimate drawings read like handwriting—from one side to another.

Heather Day lives and works in San Francisco, California. Day received a BFA from The Maryland Institute College of Art (MICA) on the Presidential Scholarship in Baltimore. The artist’s work has been shown at the Urban Institute of Contemporary Art, The Massachusetts Museum of Contemporary Art. Her work can be found in the collections of Facebook, JCREW, The Ritz-Carlton, AirBNB, Snapchat, Dropbox, Warner Brothers, YouTube and The Chicago Philharmonic Orchestra.
