Hariette has participated in solo and group exhibitions throughout Los Angeles, as well as in Philadelphia and in Gothenberg, Sweden. Her artwork is collected by prestigious private collectors in the US and Europe.
Her work is narrative and very theatrical, in a style inspired by her background prior career. Before beginning to paint, Hariette was a renowned stage actress in her native Sweden. She performed in more than 60 productions at Sweden's foremost theaters including the famed Stockholm Stadsteater. She appeared in plays written and directed by Ingmar Bergman, and starred alongside contemporaries such as Max Von Sydow.
After marrying an American, moving to the United States and raising a family, Hariette refocused her creative abilities and passion on the art of painting.
When it comes to her art, Hariette says:
"I search for the core. I struggle, focus and do the work. I look at it, and it looks back at me. The process probably has its mystique. I strive to achieve a strong artistic statement, and to reach viewers by eliciting a response.”
Hariette is currently working on a series of small-scale nonfigurative paintings.
