Who is Jordan Harmon?
My name is Jordan, and I'm an artist and a mom. I have an AA Degree in Creative Arts from Mission College and I'm currently working as an art teacher in Los Altos while I study to get a Bachelors Degree in Graphic Design at SJSU.
I have always been passionate about art and design and don't remember a time I wasn't crafting, creating something out of old recycled things, or just simply drawing something. I love looking at things deeply and observing how they make me feel. Some might call me a deep thinker or an over thinker, but I just think I'm a thinker.
I believe life is a journey without any one destination. I also believe success is measured by your courage to stand in your integrity and always follow the love in your heart.
Growing up, I was taught that making mistakes was absolutely not okay. I spent my younger years trying to obtain perfection, and when I fell short, I criticized myself harshly. I slowly learned that making mistakes is a part of life, and without mistakes, there usually isn't any sort of growth. I started making small daily paintings when the love was missing from my art. Now I try to paint every single day with trust and love in each brush stroke, loving the process as much as the finished product.
I love working with others and painting from photographs, so please feel free to contact me here for questions about commissions or special projects!
