Harrison Blackford is an abstract and impressionist artist who believes there can never be enough color on a canvas. She enjoys using energetic colors and vibrant hues to inspire a work of art. Harrison is captivated by the fact that a single painting can illuminate a space and tie an entire room together. Her passionate use of color and expressive paint strokes infuse her personality into each one of her paintings.
Harrison grew up in Spartanburg, South Carolina, and developed a deep interest in the arts and interior design at an early age. Later, studying art history and art at the University of the South: Sewanee, she continued to seek inspiration from historic artists as well as current artists of today.
Harrison’s paintings showcase the architecture, natural life, landscapes and brilliant colors of her native South Carolina. Some paintings clearly show rows of colorful houses or boats, while other more abstract pieces capture the feeling of sun-dappled water or a forest in early spring. Boutiques and galleries around the state carry her expressive, joyful paintings and prints.
Harrison currently resides in Charleston, South Carolina, and enjoys nothing more than a beautiful South Carolina day, windows up in her studio, and paint on her canvas.
