Vie Dunn-Harr, Painter. Born in San Antonio, Texas (USA) in 1953. Dunn-Harr found her artistic expression slowly, yet deliberately, and continues to explore the many possibilities in the arts. She studied in Florence, Italy at the Lorenzo de Medici Instituto de Arte and at the Toblach-Dobbiaco Academia Italia. She derived much of her early experience from the traditional school and continues to embrace formalism. Her works are organic forms rooted in architectural elements. The forms are sensuous and portray the force and fragility of nature. Dunn-Harr considers herself a contemporary realist and has exhibited in the USA, Europe and Mexico. "My works are a reflection of all that I see and those I know. I have observed that a flower, like a woman, is a delicate creation. Yet they each have strengths that enable them to prevail over adversity".
