Heather Bird Harris

Artist + Heather Bird Harris

Heather Bird Harris creates tonal, abstract paintings that reflect the history of land. Using found earth pigments, her work explores parallels between humanity and nature, including our past and present relationship to the land. 

Heather graduated from Skidmore College in 2009 with a degree in Art History and Studio Art. She has worked closely with artist Oliver Herring to host three iterations of his relational works, “Task Parties,” and has also participated in the Turnaround Arts program through President Obama’s Committee on the Arts and Humanities. As an educator, Heather also writes anti-racist history curriculum for schools in Louisiana, which is a lens that deeply informs her art. She has participated in multiple exhibitions in New York and Louisiana, and her 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.
