Heather Hubbard is a project-based multimedia artist who spent much of her childhood in the Ozarks, where she developed a fascination with nature and its forms: seed pods, pollen grains, algae cells. Since moving to California, she has gained further inspiration from the wealth of diverse ecosystems the state has to offer. These inspirations make their way into her work quite readily and their organic textures allow her to express concern for environmental issues such as climate change and loss of habitat.
Currently self-care, repair, and authentic connection are themes Heather is also exploring in her art-making practice. By incorporating elements of healing, ritual, and mythology, she explores methods of protest against the corporate-driven, impersonal grind culture that has been purposefully woven into our society.
Heather earned a BA in English and an MA in Biology from the University of Arkansas at Fayetteville and is currently near completion of an MFA in Interdisciplinary Arts at the University of Nevada, Reno. She teaches Art Appreciation at Clovis Community College and lives in Fresno with her husband, Erik, and their dog, Otis.
