Hodge Podge - A collection of Abstract Art by GW Harper
GW Harper Artist Bio
African-American abstract artist GW Harper was born in Atlanta, Georgia in 1980. Throughout her life, GW Harper has always been a creative and felt drawn to the art realm. Initially GW Harper’s creations were a method of stress relief that evolved into something much larger. Her interest in art was cultivated during her adolescent years and further developed when she opted to take several art classes during her latter high school years.
After completing her nursing degree, GW Harper shifted away from her creative background in order to focus on her fifteen year nursing career. It was not until 2017 when she returned to her first true love full-time specializing in acrylic/watercolor based abstract and mixed media creations. The abstract images GW Harper paints could easily be left up to one’s interpretation. Her Mixed Media pieces often draw parallels between current political topics and contains a slew of hidden messages and double entendres woven within the blankets of color. GW Harper cherishes when onlookers derive their own meaning from her pieces based on their own life experiences and is happiest when she is able to inspire others to follow their dreams.
Since she is now pursuing her art full-time she also hopes to procure a Master’s Degree in Fine Arts from Georgia State University in the near future. GW Harper lives and works in Atlanta, Georgia, surrounded by her art, husband, and two young daughters.
