Wini Harrison
Instructor Bio:
Wini Kemple Harrision is an artist based in the hills of Southern Indiana. She paints portraiture,
figurative work, still life, and landscape as what?s best described as romantic realism. Her
command of color and sense of place creates magic on the canvas.

She studied at the Indiana University Southeast where she earned a Bachelor of Fine Arts with
concentrations in Drawing and Painting. After graduation, she did an Independent Study in
Printmaking. The process of layering transparencies in creating monotypes led her to develop
her glazing technique in oils. Glazing has added an extra richness to her work and has allowed
her to bring a unique experience to her students.

Wini has taught oil painting at Preston Art Center for more than 20 years and holds classes at
both the Louisville and Jeffersonville stores. She has led workshops representing Gamblin Artist
Oil Colors and has been an instructor of Children's Fine Arts Classes for Louisville Visual Arts. She
has also organized and directed oil painting studios at Southern Indiana Arts Center, the Mary
Anderson Center for the Arts, and other sites in the Louisville area.

Wini lives in Edwardsville, Indiana on the land that has been in her family for over 180 years. She
has had a lifelong love of drawing and fascination with color. As her students can confirm, color
is her superpower.
