I am Jody Bauman and thanks for visiting my site. I have been an artist through out my life and art has always been in my heart. My love of art and creating it has run through my veins ever since I can remember. My major influences in art come from local artists as well as some of our classics, like Caravaggio, Gauguin, Chris Turner, Bowen Klein, Bob Ross, Denny Dent and Bill Alexander, to name a few. I work in acrylics and mostly paint on wood. The textures that are created from the raw wood create more of a dimensional painting for me. My love of music influenced me to pair the two and start live painting with musicians and bands. There's no better feeling then crafting a painting during a concert and having the pleasure to perform in front of a crowd, as they watch the piece come to life. Over the last 6 years I have been painting at Northville Winery and Brewing Company, Nico & Vali, Tangent Gallery and many other establishments in Michigan. I have created many live pieces at several weddings, private parties and venues. Custom pieces are also available for us to create together. We can come together to create art in your heart.
