Selling Original Acrylic & Pastel Paintings, Custom Mugs, Vases, Handmade Pottery Items & More Since 1971
I HAVE BEEN AN ARTIST MOST OF MY LIFE.
Dragonfly Gallery is a space to sell my original artwork with shipping around the United States. I am Maggie Bezuhly, a passionate artist specializing in acrylic and pastels.
As a little girl I used to watch my grandmother paint and it seemed like she was having so much fun, and I knew that it was what I wanted to do. I love color and I developed my interest in Pastel in college. After the second semester of drawing I was getting bored with the charcoal drawings, so I talked the teacher into letting me use pastels. By the end of the semester everyone in class was using pastels. This was a big turning point for me in my art work, I have been drawing with pastels ever since. I’m inspired by nature, the bright colors, bright sunny days even the gloomy days gives me inspiration. It is always a challenge to try and duplicate what nature has to offer.
I was also very interested in creating things three-dimensionally. I was in 7th grade when an art teacher introduced me to clay and have been hooked ever since. Working with clay gives me a different perspective and it also helps me visualize things in two- dimension when I’m painting.
My hope is that my work gives an aspiring artist the inspiration to try no matter what the outcome may be.
The art world is evolving, and there are many ways to make it easier, but I prefer using my hands to create something unique. As an old-school pottery artist, I do not use molds and spend time getting each piece right.
I have an Etsy store where I sell my handmade and painted pottery pieces. My services extend to custom items and original and certified paintings. My studio will be opening in October, featuring my original art pieces, including:
