ABOUT THE ARTIST
Paige Harkey is an artist who specializes in two-dimensional work. They love creating primarily with oil paint, acrylic, ink, and mixed media, while also having experience with ceramics, woodwork, and steel. After graduating with a BFA from Messiah College in 2017, they continued on to graduate school to earn their Masters in Art Therapy.
Most of their personal work is a reflection of their therapeutic relationship with art, and includes much symbolism to define and describe their inner conflict with mental illness and the challenges of the human psyche. Whether it is an endless series of oil-painted empty boxes, or an abstract rendering of old images, Paige's intention is to communicate stories of the human mind that often seem trapped or forgotten.
