After starting college as an art major, my life took many paths. As with millions, I was laid off in Spring 2020 because of the impact of COVID on business levels. During the pandemic isolation, I picked up my brushes and started painting again. I started painting what I love, just for fun – cats. When I started attaching photos of my work to emails sent to friends, family and former colleagues, the most frequent comment was that my work looked happy. And I began getting lots of encouragement to see what I could do with my art. Dog lovers challenged me to include dogs, and now I’m open to other animal figures as well. Sometimes I incorporate New Mexico scenes as background. Above all I love big shapes and bright colors. I started Bobbie Ferrell Art in April 2021 and began to sell. My motto is “Art That Makes You Smile.” I’m delighted to be participating in my first Santa Fe Studio Art Tour.
