Harriet is most widely recognized for her vibrant, whimsical batik paintings. Batik is a century’s old textile process that has been practiced all over the world. Her batiks reflect a more contemporary and painterly approach both in style and theme. Her vibrant colors are applied with Japanese Sumi brushes. These translucent dyes merge and flow over one another in successive layers. Hot liquid wax is applied in between each layer of dye to build the detailed textures and patterns. Harriet continues to explore other art forms. More recently, her acrylic paintings incorporate the same intuitive sense of color and form as well as the joyous connection to wild places.
