About

ARTFUL BLISS

Welcome to my whimsical world of mixed media, acrylic, watercolor, collage, and digital doodlings.

Creating is my passion. I can't remember a time when I wasn't making some kind of art but it has only been in the past couple of years that I finally decided to share my artwork with the world.

In college, I channeled my need to create to the field of architecture. Whether designing a simple residence or an entire community, I love the process of taking people’s stories, dreams, desires, and blending them with my own to create something wholly unique. So for twenty years and counting, I’ve designed buildings as my way of storytelling.

Then something happened, I found myself filling countless sketchbooks at a remarkable rate. I wanted to surround myself with simple joys. I was drawn to whimsical quirky characters. Art began to fill my mind and heart and spill unexpectedly on to whatever I had at hand.

My art (like my life) tends to be full of surprises. It is often marvelously messy and full of half-hidden layers. I never know exactly what will come next and I think that' can be a good thing.

Currently, I am fascinated by faces, especially female faces. Just a tiny tweak of a lip or drop of an eye changes the whole personality. As I am painting my ladies, I sometimes feel more that I am uncovering them than creating them. I tend to keep the expressions quiet, nether happy nor sad but in that in-between place, deep in thought where the observer can overlay in their own emotions.

You can follow me on my artful journey at my blog: http://artfulbitsandbytes.blogspot.com/

Please contact me about -well anything, but particularly if you have a question about my artwork or would like a custom piece. Have a wonderfully artful day :)
