Professor Harris has been included in more than 100 regional, national and international exhibitions. She continues to work primarily in intaglio printmaking, papermaking and the artist books. At present, her creative work focuses upon breaking the boundaries typically imposed upon printmaking as a creative resource. Her imagery centers upon creating visual narratives through the juxtaposition of found objects and printed imagery. Metaphorically, the content addresses autobiographical issues such as, memories, relationships, feelings and experiences. Handmade paper is typically used to imply a skin-like reference which symbolically suggests the dichotomy of vulnerability and resilience. The finished art works act as substitutes for her female self and the experiences within her life. Department/Division: Fine Arts
