About Elatia Harris
Greetings. I’m Elatia Harris, and I look forward to getting to know you. What I want most for you is the joy that I have had in reaching people with my writing.
In my first career, I was a painter — no surprise to me that my earliest paintings were my Restaurant Series. I traveled extensively in France and Italy to build new audiences for my art, meeting and interviewing even more chefs than I did painters. I talked my way into private kitchens for lessons, chopping an awful lot of onions to make myself useful.
All my life, I have taught people to write, even while traveling. In the 1990s, I opened an editorial and advisory service for an international clientele of writers and artists. I designed and taught a course in career development for artists at The Massachusetts College of Art. My own writing, about food, art, and many other things, is published on 3 Quarks Daily, The Rambling Epicure, and In Search of Taste.
And now — what about you?
