Carrie Harper studied at The Alberta College of Art and Design in the early 1990’s and through this experience she discovered her own language of creativity. She appreciated learning a sense of self as well as technical know-how. Art school fed right into her fascination with many creative modes and she immersed herself into any medium available; textiles, ceramics, photography, drawing, art history and more. As a painter this childlike love of process shows up in her many different styles. Carrie uses Watercolors, acrylics, oils and pastels as well as other drawing mediums and with each discovers another facet of art making.
For Carrie art is the experience of expression rather than slotting into specific medium or subject. Carrie believes that good art stirs memories and personal meaning and that may not always ‘be liked’ . She often draws on images of growing up at her family’s Okanagan Mission orchard, vineyard and winery. Carrie creates her art at her studio in Downtown Kelowna.
