I'm Bee Gates, the artist behind ArtBGates! ArtBGates's mission is to create colorful art for colorful people!
My work combines a love of color and an obsession with craft and working with my hands. I utilize paper, metals, watercolor and stained glass making fine art prints, greeting cards, stickers, earrings and sun catchers. I make colorful art for colorful people!
After teaching high school art for 10 years I decided to make and sell my own art. My company started out as FL PaperCuts when I worked solely with paper selling original watercolor paintings and one of a kind paper earrings. I eventually started selling prints, greeting cards, stickers and both paper and fine metal earrings. It wasn't long before my love of colorful things grew into a love of stained glass. My obsession with stained glass stemmed from my grandfather who worked as a stained glass artist in his spare time. Since my art was expanding into new and exciting territory I decided to change my business name to ArtBGtaes to encompass all the art that I create!
