Contemporary Fine Art With a Twist of Pop Surrealism

Welcome to HeatherWatts.com

July 2015 – Heather Watts

Welcome to the online art world of Heather Watts. From here, you can browse my paintings, join me behind-the-scenes and, very soon, buy limited edition art prints.

Meanwhile, in the real art world, my original painting Tree of Life has landed in Germany and is headed to the town of Viechtach in the Bavarian Forest for the upcoming show Venus Phantastische or “Fantastic Venus”, a three-month exhibit featuring the work of 70 international artists.

Since 2007, local artist and curator Reinhard Schmid has partnered with the town to bring top contemporary artists of the fantastic/surrealist genre from all over the world to participate in an annual extended summer art show, but this year’s collection of artists is unique:  all of them are women.    According to Schmid:  “It will be the first exhibition of this kind, where 70 professional women artists from the fields of Fantastic Art, Magic Realism, Neo-surrealism, Lowbrow or similar genres from all over the world can be seen together.”

I’m honored to have been invited to participate in this wonderful gathering of artistic spirit and talent.

Venus Phantastische opens Friday, 24 July at 19:00 in the Old Townhall (Altes Rathaus), Viechtach, Stadtplatz 1, 94234 Viechtach, Germany, phone 0049(0) 9942- 1661.  Admission is free.  All art lovers are cordially invited.  To be a colorful summer night party on the town square.


An extensive gallery of works, old and new, many with artist’s commentary.


An ongoing project to share my creative life more fully online.  Just getting started.


A small selection of limited edition prints available soon for purchase online.
