"Bre" Harris

Bre Harris grew up in the south valley of Albuquerque, New Mexico not far from the Isleta Indian Pueblo. The impact of the mixed culture of the area exposed her to art of the southwest in every form. Even the landscapes and sky came to life for her. As an adult, she moved to the Colorado Rockies and spent the next 20 years enjoying the exposure of more of the American west. Residing in the sculpture capital of the west, Loveland Colorado, it was there at the Sculpture Invitational Art Show that she first exhibited her unique art form of faces in Leather, and met her now partner sculptor David Harris.As early as childhood, Bre can remember mixing media in her artwork. Always seeking to show the human side of everything, those tangible as well as those that only exists in our dreams and imagination. A goal that still comes through her artwork today.Life has brought Bre down many roads. From building sets, backdrops, props and designing costumes with the Albuquerque Civic Light Opera and High school theater troop, to weaving the story book tales for children through storytelling and coaching youth soccer. To the more compassionate work of being a healthcare provider, and moving her into practicing alternative healing. The best is being a mom to her 2 sons and 4 stepsons. A personal tragedy started Bre on the path of self-healing through art, progressing to a permanent career change. In the New Millennium, Bre joined David at Light and Time Design Studio in Royal, Arkansas, as part owner and resident sculptor, bringing with her, her own unique medium of sculpting in leather and skill in life casting. Over the past 5 years, Bre has expanded her talents to include bronze, aluminum, stainless steel, wood and glass. To her credits since the merger, Bre has been re-sculpting Hall of Fame Baseball players, as well as the Trophies for the Independence Bowl for Hartland Collectables. Bre hopes to expand again using new untried glass techniques. "The fluid smooth flow of glass intrigues me, I'm looking forward to experimenting with glass". Whatever the medium used you can always be sure that the human characteristics will always be in Bre's pieces.
