Heather Hund (b. 1983, Texas) is an abstract artist living and working in San Francisco, California. 
Her work aims to capture the inexplicable moments of aliveness that take us out of ourselves, even for a moment. Standing on a cliff over an impossibly blue ocean, waves crashing. Wandering through giant redwoods, rays of sunlight like starbursts. The feeling of a small hand in yours. Looking up, realizing the vastness of the sky, the world. Watching children run with the joy of being alive. The wild brightness of pink flowers on a foggy day. 
Color and expressive brushstrokes are instrumental parts of her work, and her layered washes create an airy lightness, a translucent veil that we find ourselves looking through to see what lies underneath. She often includes contrasting marks or colors –
representations of the beauty that is always there. 
She holds an MA in Art History from the University of Oxford and an MBA from Stanford.
