Sally Harless has been pursuing art since early childhood despite some early discouragement.
“I drew on the porch floor with crayons when I was very small,” the artist says. “I thought my mom would be impressed but I don’t think she was.”
Harless moved from interior decoration to high school classes and crafting, an immersion in ‘zine culture in college and a Bachelor of Fine Arts in printmaking. Now Harless makes ink and watercolor illustrations that she sells as prints, jewelry and printed shadow boxes. “After I graduated, I sort of just fell into selling my work at craft shows, and realized that I could make a living at it,” she says.
Sadly Harmless Fun Facts: I have a chocolate dog named Ramsey. I love root beer. In a past life I was a whale.
