Welcome to the Bella Colore Art Blog! I am very excited to have you join me on this journey.
The Heart of Art
With Valentine's day around the corner, I couldn't think of a more perfect intro to my new blog: the Heart of Art. You may be asking yourself why am I starting this blog? I feel that the written medium helps interpret the function of my art. Through this blog, I hope to cultivate enjoyment for art and connect with y’all on your unique hobbies, interests, and lifestyles.
My name is Holley VanBenthuysen, I am the creator of Bella Colore Art. Bella Colore Art is the intersection of my desire to combine color and creativity.
Where might this desire come from you may ask? Being introduced to the world in Oklahoma and moving to Colorado I was able to open my eyes and see life in all of its color. Along with my passions for creativity, I am also enthusiastic about the outdoors. This is where I draw most of my inspiration from.
For as long as I can remember I have involved myself in a variety of art projects and I believe it is core to who I am at heart. (it is especially true for me that, you can’t spell heart with out art).
I am married to my best friend and together we raised our 5 children and our adorable brown lab, Lucy. I worked in healthcare for 15 years and was the Director of Cardiology. Later I launched a fashion consulting business. I have always felt a pull to be inspired by designing art in all forms, wether this be in clothing or a canvas.
An additional reason for this blog is to be able to interact with you, the reader. My hope is that we would be able to share our ideas and stories to form a community. Color is reflected in all things around us and art is the story that these reflections show. Art and color are all encompassing and are expressed through nature, music, fashion, food, travel, and an endless list of possibilities. It means different things to different people because art is subject to one's own expressions and experiences. That’s what makes life and art so amazing! I implore you to join me on the road of life in all of its color.
