Goodbye to Edie Harper
Samson and Delilah
I've just discovered via Grain Edit the sad news that Edie Harper, widow of illustrator Charlie Harper passed away last week aged 87. Edie too was a fantastic illustrator - very similar in style to her husband, but often described as more whimsical. She was also a very talented painter and photographer.
Her work mostly focused on Biblical stories (above) and cats (below),"She loved cats forever and felt that stories from the Bible provided her with some good design ideas", said her son Brett, who runs the Harper Art Studio.
There is a full Memoriam for Edie Harper here which tells of her wonderful talents and her life with husband Charlie Harper.
Edie Harper prints can be seen and purchased here.
