Biography from Crocker Art Museum Store:
Painter. Born in Dallas near Salem, OR on July 3, 1857.  In 1866 Heath moved with his family to Santa Cruz, California where he remained.  His father, Lucien Heath, was president of the County Bank of Santa Cruz and was twice elected to the California State Legislature.

The younger Heath showed artistic talent at an early age and studied art in San Francisco at the School of Design under Raymond Yelland, whose influence was apparent in Heath's realistically depicted works.  Following graduation from that school, he opened a studio in San Francisco where he painted and exhibited for 11 years before returning to Santa Cruz in 1885.

From his studio on Beach Hill overlooking the bay, he painted many marines and landscape scenes.  He took his many students on painting excursions.  This group of artists was known as the Jolly Daubers and was the forerunner of the Santa Cruz Art League, which Heath established with Margaret Rogers in 1919 and served as its first president.

Heath was active in Santa Cruz until his death there on April 21, 1921. Realistically depicted, his works show the influence of Yelland.
