This week I’m talking to the prolific artist and graphic designer Lela Harris. We talked about Lela’s childhood days in Manchester, sat on her back step writing her memoir on a typewriter, the acts of generosity that have helped guide her creativity, and the serendipitous snowboarding accident that opened up a staggering talent for portraiture she never knew she had.
At the time we recorded this podcast, Lela mentioned that she had a very secret, and very exciting announcement coming in October. Perfectly timed with this podcast, Lela has just revealed that earlier in the year, folio press reached out to her to design and illustrate the new edition of Alice Walker’s The Colour Purple.
Congratulations lela, you are one of a kind. Welcome to episode eight with Lela Harris.
You can find Lela on instagram @knotandgather for her artwork and @doodlelovedesigns for her graphic design. Check out her websites doodlelovedesigns.com and lelaharris.co.uk to see her incredible work.
