About Us

About Us

Welcome to ArtBloom! This site exists because I wanted to create a place where people like me, aspiring artists of all genres who are easily discouraged by our own inadequacies, could come and see that patience and practice actually do pay off. ArtBloom is a celebration of endurance — a destination for motivation. Here, you will find amazing work by inspiring artists; and right next to it, examples of their earliest attempts. I hope that this will become a place where the discouraged and unmotivated can be reminded of why they should keep creating. Bloom on! ~Thea
