I'm Jiah Harrison, the artist and designer behind Elephant & Rose. I create big, bold and colourful paintings and print designs from my home studio in the mountainous Grampians region of Victoria, Australia.
I grew up in Canberra and studied textile design at the Australian National University there. I lived in Sydney for a while too and had always been a city girl but in 2013 with my husband, our tiny baby and the city lights in our rear view mirror we set off on an adventure to live in the country (maybe just for a year or two). We have never looked back!
My work is inspired by my life here and the optimism I feel being surrounded by such beauty. My two gorgeous children, the fresh air, the rolling hills, the freedom of regional life, the abundant colours in nature and the intersection of landscape and architecture.
I experiment with paint, collage and drawing to create playful, abstract representations of the shapes and colours around me. This is my life in vivid, joyful colour!
