Harper Henry
Mesa, Arizona

Harper is inspired by her love for horses. She is based in the Sonoran Desert of Arizona, just ten minutes from the Tonto National Forest where over 500 wild horses run free. Her impressionist yet contemporary interpretations of the majestic creatures, often against vibrant backgrounds, are deeply in touch with the spirit of the animals. The horses are painted with a clear understanding of classical realism as well. “As I explore the line between realism and abstraction, it is very common that I deliberately devastate a days worth of meticulous realistic painting with rogue brush strokes so that it will cause me to rebuild and reconstruct with abstraction,” she says. “I find sometimes, this is the only way to break myself away from the realism and look at the piece with fresh eyes.”

Harper's beautiful white horse is now hanging in my 7 year old equestrian granddaughter's room. We send works of art as birthday and holiday gifts. They are for a lifetime!

@J Rugenstein Thank you so much! I appreciate the kind words and support. I recently uploaded a small work that is very reasonably priced.
