"I see the world through a brightly colored lens and I hope to share a piece of that joy with each viewer."
My name is Dare Harcourt. Appropriately named, I have spent my life living outside of the box. I was born and raised in Memphis until I was 18 when I attended Ole Miss for college. After graduation, I went through some serious health issues. During this time, I began to paint as a way to work through those issues. I fell in love with painting with my first stroke. My passion for art started from a place of healing and blossomed into a love that brings me immense joy. After realizing my passion for art, I decided to go back to school and received my Masters in Art Education at Memphis College of Art. I am currently an artist living in Memphis. Each painting of mine is made with love. There is an unmeasurable amount of joy that I get when I create a painting. Each piece is filled with love, hope, and brings a peaceful feeling that I hope translates to the viewer. My hope is that my paintings spread a little piece of joy wherever they go.
