Harper Henry is an award-winning artist creating vibrant, abstract-realistic paintings focused mainly on horses and historical western figures.
After receiving a Bachelor of Fine Arts Degree in Illustration, she had a successful career as an Art Director in the world of commercial advertising. 30 years later, she resigned and moved to Arizona to pursue painting full-time. Her work now resides in galleries and private collections throughout the country, Canada, and Australia.
Harper’s work is a unique fusion of two contradictory art styles; abstract and realism. Inspired by the great works of John Singer Sargent, Nicolai Fechin and Oleg Stavrowsky. With each new piece she tries to push artistic boundaries by finding new ways to look at classic subject matter and playing with styles that seemingly cause past and present to collide.
Harper currently lives in Arizona and works out of her studio in the heart of the Sonoran Desert.
