Since graduating in 2006 with a Bachelor of Fine Arts from Auckland University of Technology, Henrietta Harris has steadily built up a name for herself as a solid New Zealand artist.

She has skilfully hand-drawn hands, faces, brains, glaciers and more which have appeared in shows all over New Zealand, Australia, London and New York, on t-shirts, on record covers and in fine print publications.

Her paintings often involved portraiture with a departure into the surreal with faces skillfully obscured and misplaced by the clean sweep of a brushstroke. She primarily works with watercolor paint on paper.
