Artist Reception
Friday, September 10, 6-8:30pm

Fifi Flowers
Painter of Whimsy and Fun with a Parisian flair

Fifi says life should be full of WHIMSY and FUN... beautiful things that surround her daily life are what inspire her to paint! Setting a mood...playing with colour...experimenting with patterns and textures... painting on canvas, paper or working on an interior design... Art is an experience that transcends all cultural boundaries... it makes us feel! Fifi has a bachelor's degree in Art and a minor in Art History from
California Polytechnic University and attended UCLA Film School for Production Design.

Six Month Anniversary!

It is so hard to believe Belles Nest is in it's sixth month of business! We just had Chris' art exhibit...we think his work is very cool. A good time was had by all and what a wonderful response he received. It was a beautiful night and the back patio was the perfect setting. At the conception of Belle's Nest, featuring an artist and having the receptions every month was something we really wanted to do. This was merely to give an aspiring artist or seasoned artist exposure and at the same time make for a nice evening to relax, socialize and as always...inspire, be inspired and talk "art."

As we continue to settle in, our minds never sleep! With the holidays quickly approaching, new merchandise is slowly coming in from many of our marvelous crafter's. New cards from Erin Sloan just arrived, beautiful pottery from Lori Koop... her signature words of inspiration! Great new tiles from Ramona Paloma and cool prints by Anna See are just a few items to come look at.
If there is something you want us to carry, please let us know ~ we will do our best to find it for you.
Furniture pieces are finally for sale...they will be posted on flicker soon if you can't make it in.
Custom work is also being offered by us and many vendors! If you are looking for gifts for your clients, corporate gifts, party favors, bridal party gifts, etc....please consider us ~ we can create something very special for you.
We appreciate all feedback and love your for now, THANK YOU for following us, shopping with us and supporting "hand made"!!

Artist Reception

join us for some wine, and light appetizers!

Artist Chris Dodge writes...
Painting is highly therapeutic for me. My subjects gravitate towards things I enjoy, interesting compositions, or things that I think are amusing. I have a tendency to lean towards food and animal portraits. I'm not trying to paint subjects that will necessarily sell or help me gain popularity. I've found that by painting with an honest agenda, my artwork has a way of organically finding its own audience.
