African-American artist GW Harper was born in Atlanta, Georgia in 1980. Throughout her life, GW Harper has always been a creative and felt drawn to the art realm. Initially GW Harper’s creations were a method of stress relief that evolved into something much larger. Her interest in art was cultivated during her adolescent years and further developed when she opted to take several art classes during her latter high school years.
After completing her nursing degree, GW Harper briefly shifted away from her creative background in order to focus on her nursing career. She soon returned to her true love, specializing in acrylic/watercolor based abstract and mixed media creations. The abstract images GW Harper paints could easily be left up to one’s interpretation. Her Mixed Media pieces often draw parallels between current political topics and contains a slew of hidden messages and double entendres woven within the blankets of color. GW Harper cherishes when onlookers derive their own meaning from her pieces based on their own life experiences and is happiest when she is able to inspire others to follow their dreams.
