Rachel Harnish - Biography


Rachel Harnish was born in Rochester, Ny and is an artist. She believes that "in gathering inspiration from my own personal experiences as well as those around me, I have been able to infuse the pieces of work that I create with a strong emotional component. These pieces become charged with emotion through the explicit and implicit portrayal of negative emotions. In order to do this, I take negative energy and use it as the inspiration for my work, which attempts to show how negative thoughts and actions affect us as humans. This is depicted through the use of color, line and form, which develop the atmosphere of these emotions and convey them to the viewer. In addition to showing the negative aspects of life, I always have a glimmer of hope incorporated into my works as well. I hope to reach one person at a time, and open their eyes to the fact that the world needs more positive energy overall." -Rachel Harnish
