Zeal Harris – “The Dons” of Baldwin Hills – 09/20/2013

Zeal Harris creates art from personal narratives and is working on a graphic novel as well.  Her work is rich with content and color, and the scenes are full of simultaneous actions.  Harris grew up in Virginia where she worked as a portrait and caricature artist at Busch Gardens in Colonial Williamsburg.  She received her MFA from Otis College of Art and Design, studied film at UCLA, and has a talent for storytelling as well as image making.  Recently her work was included in the group exhibition, “Personal Tales” at El Camino College Art Gallery.
