Hi there! I’m Ally Bartel.
A full time artist based in Bend, Oregon. Most days you can find me working from my couch or the nearest coffee shop, sipping cold brew and dreaming up the next outdoor adventure.
My art journey started in my college dorm room, where I (like most everyone else) was still trying to figure out what I wanted to do with my life. I would fill sketchbooks up with “doodles” and didn’t take this art thing seriously until I graduated college. Once I graduated and got married to my cutie husband, I decided I really didn’t like the idea of a 9-5 windowless job.
From there I dove into creating wedding signs and invitations. After that I transitioned to creating illustrated goods. I sell stickers, clothing and prints in my shop :). I’m seriously amazed that this is where I ended up, but I am so so glad it happened this way.
I feel most like myself outdoors, so creating art that brings my love for the outdoors inside is my jam. I love all things wildflowers, pine trees, mountains and nature. I like to find beauty in the little things and my hope is that my art can remind you of the simple yet extraordinary parts of life.
Some of my favorite things include : house plants, reading, board games, thrift shopping, margaritas, wildflowers, candy and watercolors.
I’m over on Instagram on Tuesdays and Thursdays, where I share new products and my life in Oregon with my husband + our dog birdie. Let’s be friends!
