Artist Bio

J.K. Bleeg is an American artist living in Bristol, England. Her work is influenced by colour and how it elevates the vibrancy of the spectrum of cultures, landscapes and climates within close reach. In each of her works, she aims to use colour 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 as a career. 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 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 Annual 2021 (and the to-be-published 2022 edition) and the Bristol & Bath Art Book.Bleeg has also been featured in The Art Post's Top 50 Bristol ArtistsHer work is in private collections throughout the U.S., Canada, Europe and the Middle East.
