Harriet-Jade Harrow

Penzance, cornwall

I am an artist and illustrator based in West Cornwall. I work in watercolour, gouache and pencil and I collage layers of hand painted paper to create textured illustrations. These are then digitally printed to make colourful, and mostly food inspired, greetings cards. I love to paint the seasonal ingredients on my kitchen table, as well as animals and flowers, and turn them into cards for you to fill with words of love.

The story behind the business
Meet Harriet-Jade Harrow

I began painting food in 2019 when I left the city and moved back to where I grew up. In the spring, wild garlic was abundant and elderflower lacily dressed the hedgerows in early summer. The turning of each season felt vivid. We had a vegetable patch so we cooked, and I painted, with the seasons. I love to bake, try out new recipes and potter in the kitchen so it felt natural that I would start painting the foraged ingredients, the birthday cakes baked, or the bun I’d just bought for breakfast. I love painting plants and animals so they creep into my card designs from time to time too. I create my illustrations by collaging hand painted paper layers to make textured illustrations which are then digitally printed onto recycled card to turn into greetings cards. I now live by sea and paint bright and playful illustrations inspired by the fruits of the land I love.
