Illustrator Henrietta Harris creates beautiful pictures using watercolour and gouache. Her skilfully hand-drawn hands, faces, brains, glaciers seem to float away from each other, reminding us of those moments when your body is present but your mind drifts to far away places. Although her work uses traditional techniques, her beautiful portraits retain a modern subject matter and style. Henrietta has developed the timeless style that can only be achieved by having occasionally dipped one’s paintbrush accidentally in one’s coffee, but also combines tradition with less hazardous digital methods, all of which has resulted in an extensive, mutable, and memorable body of work.
