Bella Weidner lives on an apple orchard with her husband in a small town just outside of Portland, Maine. Living on the coast, Bella is consumed by the colors, scents, and sounds of the ocean. Constantly trying to find a deeper connection to the natural landscape, Bella creates paintings that explore the light and texture within rural places. A roaring campfire in the woods, surfing in the cold Atlantic, and trekking across Vermont mountains are just some of the points of inspiration that Bella’s paintings arise from.

Bella received her BFA in Painting from Montserrat College of Art in 2015 and her MAT from Maine College of Art in 2017. When Bella is not working in her studio, she is a K-12 art educator.
