Whitney Harris was born in Brooklyn, New York. She received her BA from Stony Brook University in Studio Art and studied at Art Students League in New York City in 2006.

While interning at Lower East Print Shop, she had a break through and discovered her passion for screen printing her illustrations on paper.

Now specializing in printmaking, Whitney makes illustrations on commission and instructs art workshops in libraries, schools and educational centers around the five boroughs.

She is also currently hosting an after school printmaking workshop series through the Educational Alliance at a Tompkins Square Middle School in the East Village.

Whitney has exhibited at Long Island University, Adam Clayton Powell State Building, and Stony Brook University. She lives with her partner and two cats in Flatbush, Brooklyn.
