Welcome to the art of Harrison Houlé. The works here are inspired by the stories that weave themselves through the artists life. They are reflected back to her through her friends, travels, and the magic of daily life. This art comes to life to dance across each and every canvas. We hope you enjoy the excitement of this visual expression of life, captured in a way that only Harrison Houlé can express!

Harrison and her husband, actor Conrad John Schuck, recently relocated to Nashville, Tennessee from their home in Venice Beach, California. Her home studio in Nashville is located on a Historical Battlefield of the Civil War and neighbors the well-known Carnton Plantation. This beautiful setting opens up a whole new world, with lots of space, serenity, history and is an easy commute to sharing their time between Nashville and their apartment in New York City.
It is her husband's involvement with the theatre that allows her the opportunity to capture very private moments back stage and to fill her photo journal with ideas for paintings. Harrison's theatre pieces grace the walls of the Angus MacIndoe's, on West 44th street, a popular hang out for the theatre actors in N.Y.C.
The story of Harrison's studio in Venice Beach is featured in, 'The Studio Book', Universe Publishing, Melba Levick photography.
Harrison's inspiration is found in her travels and friends. The beauty of story telling is found as an underlying theme in all of her paintings.
