Heide Davis is a painter living in Portland, Oregon. She’s originally from Texas where she attended the Art Institute of Houston and Glassell School of Art, MFAH. Her work as a specialty finisher and muralist has influenced her use of materials and encouraged experimentation in mixed media.

Her current paintings range from young women on the city streets in vaguely threatening situations to Martian landscapes and spacemen inspired by the recent Rover photos.
