Featured Artist – Blakelee Harmon

Blakelee Harmon is an emerging artist based in New York City who has dedicated her life to creating work that bonds human souls. She developed her sense of composition first through dance, exploring movement and stillness, music and silence, light and darkness, giving and taking, boundaries and abandon. Blakelee attended Marymount Manhattan for a bachelor’s degree in dance media where she also trained in oil painting and photography. She began using each of these mediums in tandem to explore concepts and inform the finished piece of work, and continues to use this method. Whatever strikes her in her daily routine is recorded and reflected in the chapter of each painting she is working on.
