Katherine Harrison is a native New Yorker who engages in meditative art as a coping mechanism to life’s ups and downs. She constructs abstract collages from magazine print, recycled cardboard and adhesive, and then transforms them into digital art. Her portfolio promotes awareness of “being mindful” and nurturing your spirituality.
“As a mental health advocate, I find that working with color is very motivating and relaxing.” The series “BMindful” represents a three-year progression of emotional and spiritual growth in her environment. Powerful images reflect anxiety and instability, and progress to a more stable and confident individual.
Her passion is to help individuals overcome obstacles that inhibit them from enjoying a healthy lifestyle. She believes transformation begins when you embrace life with a positive mind and show compassion toward others. Show your spirit, and live your truth!
