“The rugs that I picked out and the pillows with the little owls, sort of like whimsical throw pillows - I feel like you can never enough whimsical throw pillows in your house, in your life. My husband probably disagrees.” ~Busy Philipps

Big eyed birds with black and white stripped legs are coming to Artful Living Group in October. No, not vampire birds....Jodi Ohl’s “Land of the Odd and Whimsical” exhibit.
Jodi Ohl is a self-taught mixed media artist, originally from Dunkirk, NY, who now resides in Aberdeen, NC.
Having recently left her day job to pursue her artistic career full time, she is has built a body of work that is known for its distinctive texture, bold color combinations which are often whimsical or abstract compositions, as well as motivational in nature. Her art appeals to those that seem to be young at heart and who appreciate the positive side of life whether communicated through words, colors, or composition.
Published in over 23 international mixed media magazines such as Cloth Paper Scissors, Somerset Studios, Artful Blogging, Artful Journaling, Somerset Holidays and Celebrations, and Cloth Paper Scissors Studios, as well as a contributor to five mixed media books, Jodi is a paint-aholic. In 2014, Jodi’s painting, “It’s Not Complicated” (part of her Pod and Portals collection) was juried as one of the best of Mixed Media and featured in “Incite 2" by Tonia Jenny of North Light Books.
She is represented by regional galleries in North Carolina and several others along the East Coast.
In addition, Jodi is a popular mixed media art teacher online and in person, teaching at both large and small local and national workshops around the US.
Look for a new book written by the artist scheduled to be released by North Light Publications, in the latter part of 2016.
The Land of Odd and Whimsical will be on exhibit from October 1 to 30th. The opening reception is October 1 from 6:30 to 8:30 pm in the Artful Living Group gallery.
Artful Living Group’s objective of bringing affordable fun functional art to the public and the public to great artists is enhanced by
