About

Hello and welcome!

 
 

I'm Becca Bašić, and I'm passionate about art and helping other creatives turn their passions into careers!

 

I'm an artist, educator, and blogger living in Orlando, FL. Equal parts Morticia Addams, Pee-wee Herman, and Betty Boop, you'll most likely find me obsessing over my extracted teeth collection while simultaneously eating a grilled cheese and thinking of drawing donuts with sprinkles. 

 


 

 

 

I'm a mixed media artist, creative business educator, and an art and business blogger. I create sweet and strange art for light and dark hearts and educate other creatives so that they can turn their passions into careers! I'm a lover of the strange and unusual and have a strong obsession for neatness, orchids, and Fancy Grilled Cheese Fridays. I've got a name no one ever pronounces correctly, but no one ever forgets it either (pronounced Bah-shich)! 

 

Most days you'll find me up to my elbows in paint and loving on my little pug dog, Zander, and my better half, Mr. B. I'm a visual story-teller, amateur photographer, and obsessive organizer whose got a big thing for rocks and crystals (I'm addicted to amethysts). I'm ready to break out into a yoga pose at any moment, am in love with essential oils, and have been told numerous times that I'm a total hippie goth punk.

 

 

I BELIEVE IN THE MAGIC OF KINDNESS,

BECAUSE MORE OFTEN THAN NOT, WE ARE ALL

STRUGGLING, LEARNING, AND GROWING FROM

THE VERY SAME THINGS.

 

 

My art style is pop surrealism. I create a strange and curious wold of whimsical dream-like characters that seem to have jumped straight out of a fairytale, each with a story of their own. Each piece celebrates oddities and differences with the emotions of each character's story most heavily expressed in the eyes. Moody atmospheres and contrasting themes such as the sweet and strange are strongly present. My work is heavily influenced by fairytales and nursery rhymes as well as creepy carnivals, the vintage and the antique, and donuts with sprinkles. My pieces are heavily layered in an alchemy of beautiful papers, paints, color pencils, pastels, and clay. These layers create highly textured and detailed pieces that create a unique depth and appearance. 

 

 

 

I'm passionate about art and helping others, so as much as I love creating as a career, I wouldn' t be completely fulfilled if I wasn't helping others to do the same! I devote a portion of my blog to other creatives where I write about the business side of art. I administrate the Facebook group, Marketing Your Creative Business, where I share business skills from myself and other educators to help creatives thrive. I also host artLENS, a local educational and networking social for Orlando area creatives - THE event to create opportunities and learn a bit about creative business skills!

Ready to see more of my art? I'd love to invite you further into my world where you'll find my unique creations you can adopt as your very own.

 


XOXO, - B
