Sheila Dunn: Painting Bikes 

  • John Watson The Radavist

Bend artist Sheila Dunn has a new canvas these days: bikes! Approached by David Marchi, owner of Crow's Feet Commons, to customize the Open brand bike frames they were selling, Dunn has taken her unique style to create these one-of-a-kind bikes. Taking her style of broad colorful brushstrokes and translating that style to a clean streamlined bike frame proved to be a good learning curve for Dunn. While it was a challenge, it's one that paid off, getting a great response from customers and an order to do more, reports Dunn. Bikes: a new, fun and interesting prospect for the art community to explore.

A photographer as well as a painter and a printmaker, Bullwinkel has a keen eye for showcasing street-style and art from around the world. Her feed feels partly like a journal of her life and partly a showcase of how she transfers imagery that inspires her into her dream-like paintings that both spark your imagination and leave you with commentary on today's current affairs.
