Beneath the bright and cheerful colors is an urgent feeling - a need to preserve wild Florida before it's gone.
Harriet Huss started her art career as a potter. Graduating from Eckerd College's storied art program in 1973, "It was a great time to be an artist."
She was a professional potter for 15 years, but at one point, found herself starting to do more and more two-dimensional work - platters, tiles - mostly to have a surface on which to paint pictures.
"I realized I really wanted to start painting," she says.
