Ted Harrison
Edward Harrison was born in 1926 in England. In 1943 he enrolled in the West Hartlepool College of Art, but his education was interrupted by the Second World War. Following military service, he returned to art school and in 1950, received a diploma of Design. The following year he received a teaching certificate and began a 28-year career in Education. He taught around the world, finally arriving in the Yukon in 1967. A distinctive and popular artist, his love of the Yukon and of the land brought him national acclaim. His distinctive painting style was colourful and sophisticated yet retained an innocent charm. He was also an internationally recognized author and illustrator of children's books and spent much of his career teaching art to children of all ages. In 1987 he received the Order of Canada for his contribution to our country’s culture. He moved to Victoria, BC in 1993. He passed away in January, 2015.
