Bruce County, Ontario based artist Heather Lynne Travis is known for her bold use of colour in her large scale, and often whimsical, abstracts.


A lifelong artist selling mainly to family and friends, Heather has been exhibiting professionally (and selling art to strangers) since 2018 and in that short time has added colour to the walls of hundreds of homes with her original artwork and limited run prints.  Heather also creates large scale murals for businesses and private homes.

Heather is the host and creator of #shARTwithHeather, a popular weekly 'Shitty Art Class for Adults etc' Instagram LIVE class and regular #shARTprompt reels. Beginning in January of 2021, there is now a wide and regular #shARTie community which only continues to grow. 


Heather's work has been featured at the TOM Thomson Art Gallery, LOFT Gallery, Southampton Arts, Studio 101 Gallery, and others.


Heather had her first solo exhibition in the Fall of 2023 (September through December) at the Bruce County Museum & Cultural Centre with funding support provided by a Canada Council for the Arts grant. The exhibition featured 32 works of art covering 35 canvases.

Welcome to this side of the rainbow!
