About Scarletfruit

Why the name...?

Scarletfruit encapsulates a world of luscious colour and sensuality.  My actual name is Karen Amanda Harris and I live in London, UK.    

The Scarletfruit style

My work is based on the mythical, the mystical and -irrestistibly- the mathematical.


I use Promarker (Letraset/ Winsor & Newton) and ink liner on watercolour paper - sometimes achieving extra vibrancy with gel pen, glittery nail varnish, and even correction fluid.


The texture of watercolour paper draws in the ink with a velvety richness - although this same texture often attempts to lead the ink astray!  Over the years, I've learned that both pen and paper need to be treated with absolute delicacy and respect.


There's a real pleasure in trying to find an elusive alchemy of colour and shape from the myriad possibilities. Plus the whole process is both deeply, deeply meditative and immensely thrilling.
