Heather Haynes is an internationally known artist who has been painting professionally for 27 years. In 2005 her work was brought into galleries across Canada, The United States and The United Kingdom. She painted feverishly to keep up with the demand to supply these galleries for several years. In 2012 Heather opened her own gallery – Heather Haynes Gallery – in order to expand on the work she exhibits to the public.
In 2008 Heather took a trip to Uganda, Africa to perform humanitarian work in the effort to eradicate malaria. Ever since she set foot on the African soil, her heart was won over by the environment and the people. She continued to travel to different countries in Africa, specifically Tanzania and Democratic Republic of Congo. She has found herself working with local leaders that want to help bring up their communities and reduce the impoverished situations faced by so many. Heather has inspired and influenced many North Americans to join in on the effort to help some of the world’s most vulnerable people.
Heather’s art is both what inspires her to courage and sustains her efforts to aid the most vulnerable.
