Artist Bio

Hi! I'm Bridget Zoltek, a Central Florida artist.

I'm best known for my high contrast, brightly colored acrylic and alcohol ink paintings and realistic nature paintings. I was born in West Virginia, moved to Indiana, then finished growing up in Florida, where I currently live. This lifestyle has given me a deep love of the mountains, farmland, and coastal living, all of which is reflected in my paintings.

 

I began drawing to cope with my mother's death when I was nine years old, focusing my art on many different animals throughout my childhood.  Eventually, when I began formal training in high school, my teacher convinced me to widen my scope of subjects and skill sets. I then began exhibiting in art shows and competing in art contests. As a result, I won an Honorable Mention Gold Key Scholarship award and  continued studying art at the University of Central Florida, where I later graduated with a BS in Health Services Administration.

I currently continue to happily paint and design in my home studio. I absolutely love the idea of brightening someone's day with my art!

My Clients

The people who enjoy my art the most are typically women, between the ages of 30 and 70, who enjoy decorating their homes with lovely, hopeful, and sometimes whimsical artwork.   

What do I bring to the table?

 

I have been in a leadership position in small businesses since 1984 and have owned my own business since 2002. I meet deadlines, understand marketing, and can work on a team cooperatively and happily. I also understand the importance of conducting business in an ethical, rational manner, and am an excellent communicator.  I am a prolific, experienced artist, constantly creating and learning new skills to improve my artwork and satisfy my clients. 

My process starts with original paintings, which are scanned and saved as high resolution files.  These files are then edited with state of the art graphics design software and compiled into full design collections.  My clients then receive high resolution finished files, which can be customized to meet their design needs. 

I'd love to chat with you if you're interested in discussing commissions, representation, or licensing. Please feel free to contact me at bridgetzoltek@gmail.com or (407) 285-1090.
