Artist Bio

J.K. Bleeg is an American artist living in Bristol, England. Her work is influenced by how colour can trigger memories and elevate the energy of a space. In each of her works, she aims to use colour in combination with hints of the natural landscape to build mood and provide the viewer with an escape to -- or a permanent reminder of -- a special place, memory, or state of mind.

Bleeg spent many years working in journalism and corporate communications before pursuing her life-long love of painting. She has studied with professional artists over the years but is largely self-taught.

J.K. Bleeg works primarily in acrylic on canvas, building each piece with layers of paint and added pastel, charcoal and other mixed media to create texture and depth. Her paintings have been exhibited in juried shows in the U.S. and U.K. and included in such books as ArtFolio and the Bristol & Bath Art Book. Her work is in private and corporate collections in the U.S., Canada, Europe and the Middle East.
