October's Featured Artist
Bobbi spent 10 years as a commercial artist, including 5 years in computer graphics, before dropping out of the corporate world to pursue her dream of a career as a fine artist in 1990. She has designed and painted jewelry, clothing and furniture, worked in interior design and as a muralist as well as selling her paintings and drawings. Her artwork has appeared on the covers of “Studio Photography” and “San Diego Realtor” magazines.
She has studied art in Ohio, California and Florida. Her work has appeared in shows and galleries across the country, including a one woman show for the Encinitas Arts Foundation in California. She has been represented by the Alan Gallery in Berea, Ohio, and The Art Scene in San Diego, California. Her work is currently on display at the Art Gallery of Viera at The Avenue in Viera, Florida.
Bobbi's art was also recently published in S. Rosewell's "Bebe and the Binoculars" and she is currently working on illustrating a 3rd children's book. This is a full-color poetry book geared toward young children titled "Time to Rhyme" written by Sally Riedesel.
Professional organizations in which Bobbi is a member include the Central Brevard Art Association, Brevard Watercolor Society, Strawbridge Art League and the Florida Watercolor Society.
Her work has won awards in California and Florida and is in private collections and businesses throughout the USA and in Canada.
Her studio is in Merritt Island, Florida.
And, Yes, her middle initial really is Q. We added that to differentiate her website from BobbiBrown.com, the cosmetics company.View full profile
