We also still have a large collection of Harriet’s drawings and prints which we like to promote for sale.

Harriet participated as the most prominent artist in the First Annual Bay Area Erotic Art Festival
in the San Francisco Bay Area in 1982.
Inspired by the writings of Anaïs Nin, Harriet had created in 1979 a collection of twelve erotic drawings (all 11″ wide by 17″ tall) entitled “12 Months of Rapture”.
Her name and her collection’s March drawing was featured on the original posters advertising the event in the Bay Area.

At some time in her life, Harriet suffered from severe depression and received treatment. During that time, she created drawings that reflect on her state of mind during those struggling years. Some might find these drawings interesting in the context of an artist dealing with and overcoming that debilitating mental condition.
