Marcia Harris graduated in 2004 with a BFA from University of British Columbia Okanagan in Kelowna, B.C. She majored in painting, drawing, photography and printmaking. Since then Harris has sold her work throughout Western Canada. Her work is part of various permanent collections throughout Alberta including Alberta Foundation for the Arts and Royal Alexander Hospital in Edmonton.
Many of Harris’ past works have depicted environmental themes including bees in their cohabitation and Colony Collapse Disorder. Harris also did studies and paintings about the Pine Beetle and its damaging effects in Western Canada. She had two public exhibitions with her work in that regard. Her current subject matter is more specific to urban and architectural themes.
