Valentina Harper (formerly Ramos) grew up in Caracas, Venezuela, where her childhood was filled with drawing, coloring and painting. As an adult, she came to the United States with a brilliant imagination and a heart full of dreams. After earning a degree in graphic design and working for 15 years as a graphic designer, Harper discovered a new life as a professional artist. In her Nashville studio, she spends countless happy hours with her paints and her Rapidograph pens, nurturing her world of fantasies and dreams where her uplifting drawings and designs take shape. Harper enjoys working with different materials, but black ink is one of her favorite mediums. Her attention to intricate detail is a signature of her drawing style.
About Fine Feathered Friends
Harper states, “The artistry of nature has always captivated me. Birds hold a special place in my heart, because they embody so many life-giving qualities, such as freedom, beauty, creativity, color, playfulness, grace and music. In this exhibit, I honor the spirit of the bird in 21 unique pieces by using bright colors and highly detailed patterns that swirl and undulate– playful artwork made with passion.”
