Shakia Harris

Contemporary oil painter. I primarily create impressionistic florals and landscapes. Based out of Shelbyville, KY , but I do local pickups as well as domestic & international shipping. I started painting as a way to manage trauma. I then pivoted to creating works to benefit my students (Elementary Special Education Teacher). Now I use the brushes and palette knives as a means to document a journey to reclaim identity, or to inject whimsy and romance in some of the darkest of circumstances.
