“Each of us have our own lives. It is not for me to tell you how to conduct your life. I am just showing a bit of my feelings through the paintings. If the viewer likes the painting, he will sense my feelings.” When he paints, Drew’s main concern is to have complete connection to the work. As for any profound message, Drew doesn’t think he intentionally starts out with any high-minded artist statement but rather, it is a feeling that develops.
Drew Harris received his formal education in design and fine arts at Georgian College of Applied Arts in Ontario Canada, 1979 – 1982, receiving the Ontario Premiere’s Award for most outstanding student of design in Ontario.
