MaryLea Harris grew up in Northern Virginia where she taught art in the public schools and married her college sweetheart. MaryLea spent 6 years blogging about children's arts and crafts while staying home to raise their two daughters. After moving to the Pacific Northwest in the fall of 2013, MaryLea decided to retire from craft blogging and return to her roots as a visual artist specializing in painting, mixed media, sculptural books, and art quilts. She maintains a sunny studio in Bend, Oregon. MaryLea enjoys reading, gardening, making creative messes with her kids, and walking her retired rescued racing greyhound.
