New Artist Spotlight: Cara Harjes

Cow and Horse

After her husband asked her to paint something for his Christmas present, Cara Harjes found her passion. She worked as a professional counselor for almost a decade before turning her attention to art. Through her works, she hopes to “explore both the joy and messiness of life.” When it comes to approaching the canvas, she prefers to let accidents happen — they oftentimes lead to her best pieces.
