Hi there! I’m Josephine Fealy, a Bay Area artist creating traditional and digital artwork. After discovering a love of art when I was in my early teens, I studied art principles and fundamentals at Diablo Valley College. Due to financial pressures, my focus turned away from art in my late teens, and on to how I could make the most money.
Something was missing — and that something was art. I felt my passion for art-making and creativity aching to come through the surface, but pushed it down, convinced that I did not have the time, or the talent, to make successful work.
In 2020, I enrolled in a Figure Painting course, which overlapped the start of the COVID-19 Pandemic lockdowns. Spending time in my home making artwork, my passion could no longer be suppressed, and I knew that this was something that I must pursue sincerely.
So, here we are! I am currently focused on making daily artworks — around 5 paintings per week, as well as drawings and digital studies.
I am passionate about both Fine Art and Illustration, with my stylistic influences coming from both the Masters of Fine Art and the new Masters of concept design and character art. I strive to develop artwork that exists in that place between Fine Art and Commercial Art, bringing the best of both worlds together through both natural and digital media.
