Heather Brown (they/she) is an artist, photographer, and arts educator based in San Francisco. For their art practice, Brown incorporates a variety of mediums including film photography, fiber processes, metalworking, and filmmaking. Their work explores many themes both personal and universal, including gender and sexual identity, mental health and depression, capitalist decline, climate change, and existential dread. Brown often uses themself as the subject, creating unique self-portraits which serve in part as personal catharsis. Recently, they have incorporated fiber processes such as crochet to elevate the medium to the realm of fine art as well as challenge the stereotypes of prescribed domesticity and ‘women’s work’. Brown received their BFA from the University of North Carolina Asheville in 2016 and is currently pursuing their MFA from San Jose State University (expected graduation date: June 2022).
