Heather Bird Harris

Artist + Heather Bird Harris

I am a painter, muralist, and conceptual artist living and working in New Orleans. ​I paint tonal landscapes, often using pigments from the land itself.  My paintings explore the parallels between humanity and nature, including our past and present relationship to the land. 

I graduated from Skidmore College in 2009 with a degree in Art History and Studio Art. I have worked closely with artist Oliver Herring to host three iterations of his relational works, “Task Parties,” and have also been involved with the Turnaround Arts program through President Obama’s Committee on the Arts and Humanities. I have participated in multiple exhibitions in New York and New Orleans, and my paintings and commissions have been sold to collectors internationally.

I am also an educator, activist, and mother. My partner Josh and I have two little ones, Jade and Hazel.
