A long time resident of Santa Cruz, California, Bruce Harman has been a full-time artist since 1980. Many of his paintings are inspired by spontaneous visions, in meditation and quiet moments. An abiding interest in spiritual ideas from many sources informs his personal philosophy, while a fascination with sacred geometry guides compositions and symbols embedded in the work.
Having a training in printmaking, Bruce makes his own prints and finishes each by hand in the studio, but the pieces all start as acrylic paintings. Being a patient craftsman, some of the paintings take a year to complete. Once finished, they are scanned and brought into the computer for final touches before prints are made.
