About Harmston Arts
Harmston Arts = Steve & Bonnie Harmston
Harmston Arts represents a partnership of 30 years of creativity. Steve has a BFA in Printmaking and has spent his career working initially as a commercial screen printer before focusing as a printmaker in the fine arts. Bonnie has a degree in Marketing . Together they collaborate on designs that reflect their experiences from travels throughout the wild and rural parts of the land. Their silkscreen prints are the expression of an attachment to this imagery with simple, hand-cut shapes, overlaying a vibrant color palette of translucent and opaque colors.
While other artists may use a brush to paint their images onto canvas, Steve uses something as simple as a #11 Exacto blade. Combining color, simple shapes and the physical aspects of creating their art…the stencil cutting, color mixing and the act of pulling ink across the screen onto the paper all come together to produce unique original pieces of art.
They still embrace the craft of fine art printmaking, printing in very short, limited editions never making commercial reproductions of their work. Avoiding high tech equipment they continue to stay true to processes utilized from generations past to bring vibrant images to life in editions that remain at 50 or less.
