"I'm happy to be alive as long as I can paint"
- Frida Kahlo -
Brandy Powers Blackstone is a mixed media artist who specializes in realistic abstract works of art inspired by nature and the world around her. Having owned and operated her own web and graphics design firm for over 20 years, Brandy found that creating works of art with her hands was more exciting than she could have imagined. She loves to explore expressing herself creatively through a variety of mediums including watercolor, acrylics and oil, and hopes others experience the same joy she feels when she is surrounded by nature while viewing her work.
Brandy is a member of the Calvert Artist Guild and the Color & Light Society, and her work can soon be found at the St. Mary's County Arts Council Gallery & Gift Shop in Leonardtown, Maryland and in her first show titled "Different Strokes" with two fellow Southern Maryland Artists at the CalvART Gallery located at
