Who is Jordan Harmon?


July 2017

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!
