Heather Lynn Gibson graduated valedictorian from Hussian School Of Art in Philadelphia, with a split major in illustration and design. Her art career started with Walt Disney's Animation Studio Florida, where she learned from some of the top artists in the field. Returning to her home state of New Jersey, Heather started her studio. As her art progressed, she gained more satisfied customers with her graphic design and illustration, such as Disney Design Group, Tyco Toys, and TD Bank.
Today, Heather is devoted to her fine art and utilizes her years of design expertise in her paintings. By choosing unique subject matter, unexpected point-of-view, or bold placement of elements on her canvas, she adds an inventive twist to each of her paintings. Heather's art is fresh. Bright colors of the underpainting pop throughout her final work, as her brushwork, highlights the texture of the canvas. Heather also enjoys the freedom of ragged strokes near the boundaries of her work to show the potential viewers how the series of thought out strokes made the whole.
Heather's devotion to customer satisfaction is key—relationships are built. Her Collectors are Heather's biggest advocates, fans and friends.
Heather currently resides in Berlin, New Jersey with her son, Harrison, and her little dog, Sadie. She is a Signature Member of American Women Artists.

What Collectors are saying...
"...Beautiful, inventive painting—full of life, and a joy to see."
—Thomas W Schaller renown watercolorist
Judge of Plein Air Magazine's Salon
Heather’s oil paintings are naturally one of a kind. (My painting that I received as a gift) has even more uniqueness and meaning to me. Heather is a talented and gifted artist. I am honored to receive a piece of her work.
-Deana Harold (gifted by Frank Foy)
"...Heather's paintings make us feel as if we're apart of the scene. They are so colorful and alive. We happily own two of her paintings. Recommended her art to a friend, and he purchased a painting, too."
-Karen and Russ Bleakley
"...Heather's paintings draw you in because they are familiar and comfortable...created with cheerful, vibrant colors. We would recommend her artwork to friends and anyone who would love to brighten the rooms of their homes."
-Phil and Michele Mesisca
" My first interaction with Heather Lynn Gibson was four years ago...and was immediately drawn to her oil paintings. The first painting that I purchased from Heather was her Blue Glass Vase with a starfish. My eye was immediately drawn to that painting because of the realistic nature of the piece. I felt that I could reach out and touch the vase and pull it off the linen. The following year, my husband and I set out to find Heather at the art show again to hopefully purchase another painting. When we found her, Heather remembered us, by name! Not only is Heather an amazingly talented artist, she is a lovely and kind person. Fast forward to August of 2017 and we are the proud owners of six Heather Lynn Gibson's paintings!
I have proudly displayed them through our beach home and every day as I admire the paintings, I am still amazed at the attention to detail, the colors, the depth and how realistic her art is... Our latest purchase, Catamaran and Double Rainbow, is absolutely beautiful. I feel like I am sitting right on the beach watching the Catamarans admiring the Ocean City landscape in the background.
My husband and I are so happy to have met Heather Lynn Gibson, and her artwork has made our home more beautiful. As I am running out of wall space in our beach home, we now need to fill our primary home in PA with Heather's painting!"
