Founded in 2019 in Traverse City, Michigan with the ideas of curiosity and expressionism, Harpe Star is the digital playground of creative duo Kristen Lea Stewart and Micah Mabey. Through photography, journalism, design, and
whatever else catches their fancy, the two are spreading art throughout the cosmos one star at a time
After becoming fast friends during the Old Town Playhouse production of The Who’s “Tommy” in Traverse City, Michigan, Kristen and Micah quickly realized their mutual love of all things weird and funky. Immediately sharing their taste in music, film, photography and any other kind of media you can think of, the two decided it was the best and only natural course of action to start what is now known as Harpe Star, so that they could take all of their influences, mash them together, and create their own unique art.
With shooting for the Old Town Playhouse, Northwestern Michigan College, The National Writers Series, Melges24, and all sorts of other projects big and small, the duo is keeping busy and more than excited about what the future holds for Harpe Star.
