Harper Barrow is a portrait artist who is revered for her meticulous attention to detail. She works exclusively with charcoal and heavy tooth papers, which give her portraits a beautiful texture. She is gifted in her ability to capture the intense, raw emotion of her subjects, leaving the viewer with an understanding of the subject’s character.
Harper is passionate about the special needs community; her brother is non-verbal with severe autism and is a frequent subject in her work. Harper also finds inspiration from travel, and the people in her everyday life.
Harper considers herself very fortunate to have a steady list of clients who keep her busy with commission work. These commissions are typically portraits of children, adults, and pets. Many of those are featured on this site, along with her personal work.
Harper graduated from The University of Georgia with a BFA degree in drawing. She studied abroad in Cortona, Italy during her time at UGA.
