Studio Beju is delighted to welcome the January and February Featured Artist Theresa Harris!
Artist Bio- Theresa Harris grew up moving a lot which allowed her to have a broad understanding of diversity and natural beauty inherent in our country. Born in Santa Barbara, CA, she also lived in Virginia and Colorado and attended most of her schooling in Brunswick, GA. Drawing and portraiture were rooted in her family, and her art was nurtured through her Mom, the artistic environment of the Golden Isles, and art classes in school. As a teenager she went from drawing people to drawing clothing, and that eventually led her to obtain a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in Fashion Design. She attended The Savannah College of Art and Design and The Fashion Institute of Technology, and spent two years of study in Florence, Italy at the fashion college, Polimoda. Exposure to various art forms in Europe continues to influence how she interprets art and design. Theresa began her apparel design career in Santa Barbara, CA with Teva apparel, and then with Patagonia. By 2004 she started a consulting business for the apparel industry, and continued her love of apparel design. In 2006, Theresa was reintroduced to plein air painting, and reconnected with her passion of creating fine art. She and her husband are avid outdoor enthusiasts and travelers who currently reside in the greater Seattle area. She finds inspiration for oil painting in landscape, still life, portrait, and figure.
