Untitled (P0075) by Shana Harper. Acrylic on stretched canvas, 2019. 38 x 40".

Shana Harper's artist statement: "I am a phenomenal artist who works primarily in printmaking, ceramics, textiles and drawing.

In my drawings I like to work with holes or gaps, especially in my nature scenes. Sometimes that's me, sometimes I'm in a hole trying to get out of it and a lot of my art is about my feelings. When I work in the studio I like to stay in one spot so I can focus.

I like to draw variations of an image; a flower, a leaf. I like to repeat an image; that's why stencils and printmaking interest me. I like to work an image until it's perfected. I also like to challenge myself. Learning printmaking was a challenge over the last decade.

In my ceramics I have made several pie sculptures since food is about memory to me. I made an apple pie sculpture to remember a loved one who has passed away. Working with clay I like the feel of it, I like smoothing it out, I like perfecting it.

I want my art to expand into the world. I want to make useful things like napkins and pots. Things that people use and wear everyday. I want you to know that being an artist is the best feeling in the world. "
