November 2017 Unicorn Of The Month: Joha Harrison

Joha Harrison was born in Baton Rouge Louisiana but now currently lives and works in Sacramento California. Like most artists, his interest in being creative started at an early age. In elementary school he would often experiment with watercolors in the backyard, but as he grew older, his interest in art dwindled, and he became active in sports.

In his junior year of high school, his interest in art, particularly photography, came back to the forefront. An unexpected move with his family caused him to purchase multiple disposable cameras from local grocery stores. He wanted to document and commit to memory EVERYTHING he saw before him so he could remember the last place he called home.

When he was in college he became the historian for an on campus organization as well as their was official photographer. This promotion and opportunity allowed him to buy his first "real" non disposable camera. His love for photography took off, but it was still years before would pick up a paintbrush again. Although photography is his main focus he still makes time to create original art watercolors and doodles.
