Grounded in Curiosity

My parents named me Harper to honor the author, Harper Lee, and my Mom’s family name. I wanted my name to be Jenny for the longest time. I was raised by loving non-conformists, with a brother who decided at age ten to become a comedian. Curiosity and authenticity were my family’s highest family values.

I have earned a BFA in Photography, an MA in Art Education and more than 300 hours training as a facilitator of Self-Inquiry. I’ve taught art for the past ten years. Today I am practicing the roles of teacher, writer, photographer, wife, mom and student.

I believe that humankind is built for creativity, and that when our thinking is aligned we will realize our greatest potential. Creativity, compassion and courage are what the world needs from you now and I want to draw those gifts out into the light.
