Josephine studied art at the Norwich School, graduated from the University of Leicester and studied wildlife in South Africa with her bird artist father, J.C. Harrison.
Widely traveled, Harrison taught high school students in the U.K. and Australia, and art and meditation at the Daytona Beach Community College, U.S.A. She is past president of the Theosophical Society in Florida and was chair of the Parent Advisory Council there.
Harrison has written and illustrated three books in which many of her images symbolize the present world situation, namely The Magical Master Snowman and the Black Dragon – a fairy tale about the coming of the World Teacher for the age of Aquarius and its sequel The Magic Bird’s Nest. Her unique textile collage art form has been exhibited internationally.
Exhibitions include: Consider the Children, Sharing, For the Love of Life and An Age of Miracles, a collage of media reports on unexplained phenomena worldwide, which has toured the USA, Canada and New Zealand. Josephine is a founding member of ArtsPacific Guild, an artist’s cooperative on Bowen Island and she has recently relocated her studio from there to North Vancouver.
