Makiko Harris

Born in Breda, The Netherlands / Works in SF
Makiko Harris was born in Breda, The Netherlands - and after stints in Tokyo, Boston, New York and Sonoma, CA - now lives and works in San Francisco. She studied Philosophy and Studio Art at Tufts University (B.A. 2011), focusing on Aesthetics, Philosophy of Art, and Feminist Philosophy. After graduation, she continued her studio art education at the California College of Arts in San Francisco and studied with Patrick Dintino and Mel Prest. Makiko has worked in the fashion, music, and design industries - and in addition to making art, she runs her own digital product design consulting business, Silent Howl Studios. Currently Makiko is a Studio Artist at Root Division - a fellowship for emerging artists that provides subsidized studio space in downtown San Francisco and professional development support.
"I’m a half Japanese hapa woman who grew up mostly in Sonoma, California - about an hour north of San Francisco. After college, I worked as a costume design assistant on movie sets in New York. Eventually, I moved back west and worked in fashion merchandising for several years. In 2015, I transitioned to digital product design where I have had the privilege of working in-house at several companies, and now run my own digital product design consulting business. I’ve played violin since I was a wee one and music continues to be an important part of my life. My most recent project was playing electric violin in Great Highway, San Francisco-based indie electro-pop band, which released an album in 2018."
