Boldly painted. Joyfully feminist.

self-portrait by Gwenn Seemel

Hi! I’m Gwenn Seemel.

I make brightly colored paintings that are both playful and intense, and I release all my work directly into the public domain. I’m not on social media, but my art has appeared in Newsweek, and I recently made my big screen début in the Belgian documentary Queerying Nature.

My current project is a series of surreal paintings about mental health.

It’s called Everything’s Fine, and I’m in the process of turning the paintings into a coloring book. If you support the Kickstarter campaign by October 15th you can get access to lots fun rewards. Whatever the amount, every pledge matters!

If you’re in or around New Jersey, check out the original paintings from Everything’s Fine on display at the Princeton Public Library through the middle of October.

Also, I’ve got some work at Johanna Furst’s Studio on the 3rd floor of the People’s Store in Lambertville, plus a few pieces from Baby Sees ABCs are on display at Powell Lane Arts in Collingswood, New Jersey.

And through October 29th this portrait is on display as part of the Phillips’ Mill 94th Annual Juried Art Show in New Hope, Pennsylvania.
