ABOUT KES HARPER

Collecting and making from a young age in New Zealand set Kes Harper on her creative path. A family move to the west country of England inevitably led to an art education and career. 

After nearly 20 years in various creative roles, Kes chose to move from Cornwall to Australia.

 

With an eye for detail, hands for making and a mind for play, Kes fulfilled many passions – jeweller, art teacher, arts administrator, retail, artist, maker.

 

This led to a series of successful positions at the Art Gallery of NSW including Exhibition Shop Supervisor. and, most notably, her 8 year role as Education Coordinator for the Art Gallery Society.

 

Having exhausted her love of Sydney and city life, Kes chose an autonomous, sustainable and simple life, moving to her off grid solar studio in the Australian bush. 

 

Now, living an artist's and gleaner's life, Kes has embraced the natural and conscious ethic in work and life where as much as possible is gleaned...as it should be.
