About Harriet Connides
Born London 1963. Avid collector of broken victorian dolls and old books. Ambition : to live in a haunted house. My work is figurative and allegorical. Drawing & painting women gives me licence to enjoy the the decorative elements of dress,the combination of static figures and movement, like billowing wind which makes hair blow, or creates intricate patterns. I love Art Nouveau & find inspiration in the work of Raphael Kirchner, Paula Rego & Kathe Kollwitz.
