In 2005 I made a decision to show in galleries, and within 1 year I couldn’t paint enough to keep up with demand from galleries and buyers. This allowed Jeff to leave his job and be the main care-giver to our kids, and let me fly as we knew I was intended to.
As time passed and the kids slowly became less dependent, Jeff found his creative stride and was able to put out an album entitled “Songs from the Middle” under the band name My Friend Andy (Andrew being Jeff’s middle name). He continues to make music to this day.
So, we are a creative family, willing to take risks in order to strive towards living extraordinary lives. We love to travel and have taken our kids out of school for many months at a time over the years while traveling to Australia, New Zealand and Tanzania, Africa.
In 2012 we opened Heather Haynes Gallery, which wasn’t really the plan but there was a need for me to show new work that other galleries weren’t quite ready for. I found my market and a new career as gallery owner… Now, in 2022 we have shifted our gallery into our home, where I am able to invite clients and friends to share my world, my life.
Art is Life and Life is Art.
