Jeremy Harper


Oil and Water


For the cover of this year’s Blue & Green issue, we asked Santa Barbara native Jeremy Harper to contribute one of his bright plein-air oil paintings. Harper, a San Francisco Art Institute graduate, has been drawing and painting since early childhood. He remained in San Francisco after graduating in 1994, teaching art at New Traditions elementary school. Harper is now a permanent member of the illustrious Oak Group in Santa Barbara, and he spends his time painting plein air here along the Pacific Coast. See more of his paintings at jeremy-harper.com.
