Maeve Harris renders expressions of color and light. She is strongly influenced by natural and organic forms, Created with a variety of inks and pigments, her paintings reveal a focus on the medium itself. She is interested in the integration of traditional subjects and contemporary styles.
Born in New Jersey in 1976, Harris grew up on the east coast in Washington DC and outside of NYC. Encouraged by the diversity of art New York had to offer, Maeve explored the tradition and historical importance of works at the Met Museum compared to installations and contemporary pieces in galleries. She was exposed to a broad spectrum of influences, and is affected by works from living artists.
Harris moved to Phoenix, Arizona in 1994 where she attended Arizona State University and received her BFA Degree in photography. Her work in photographic processes carried into printmaking and painting. She references photographs and enjoys experimentation with other media to push the limits of paint.
Study abroad in Italy richly influenced Harris’ life. Travel is an important part of her life and she draws from her experiences an optimistic and wholehearted spirit. She enjoys love, laughter, and is a storyteller at heart. Currently she resides in Seattle, WA where she paints from her studio in Pioneer Square.
