Hello, friend! My name is Stacie Bloomfield, and I’m an artist, a mom of 3, married to a mathematician turned computer coder. We live in a perpetual fixer upper in Northwest Arkansas.
When I was a little girl, I KNEW in my gut that I would grow up to be an artist. Either that, or a professional softball player (I watched a League of Their Own on repeat). I did grow up to be an artist, but my success has been WILDLY different from what I predicted. In fact, it has far exceeded anything my mind could have imagined.
I married a sweet guy named Nathan when I was 20, and we welcomed our first daughter when I was only 22. And for a while, I put my dreams of being an artist on hold so that I could support my graduate student husband, all while balancing working full time at a coffee shop and trying to figure out motherhood.
IT. WAS. TOO. MUCH.
I longed to find a way back to art, to be present for my kids, and to create income from my art so that I could support my family.
That was 14 years ago. What has happened in my life since then has been a mix of trial and error, LOTS of hard work, thousands of French Presses of strong coffee, and the unwavering dream that I was put on this earth to somehow, someway, use my talents for illustration to do good. To make a difference. To provide stability for my own growing family.
I think that many of you have the same dream. You dream of using your artwork to create income.
You dream of having the flexibility in your schedule to show up to the school events, or drop everything to get to that appointment. You dream of seeing your artwork on products in stores all across the world. You dream that the world needs your talents.
You just aren’t sure how to make it happen.
I’m here to be your guide. To lighten your load. To save you YEARS of research and to share my decade of personal experiences with you so that you can work smarter, not harder.
I’m an illustrator and entrepreneur with 10+ years of experience running a thriving illustration business. My company, Gingiber, produces items sold in over 1,400 retail stores and I have licensed my artwork to countless companies over the years such as Williams Sonoma, Crate and Barrel, Moda Fabrics, and more.
My number one goal is to create artwork and products that encourages and inspires you to live your most full, creative life. And, my dream for you is that you are able to look at your own giftings and talents and turn them into a joyful, fulfilling career that brings you stability and peace of mind.
Consider me your personal cheerleader. Because I believe with EVERYTHING inside of me that we were made to encourage each other.
Every experience we’ve walked through, every criticism we’ve faced, every decision that we got right.... well it shapes us and prepares us for what is to come next.
I know that who I am today is different from who I was even last week or last year. And, golly, things have been very unpredictable lately. Yet we still have to keep moving on our path. And keep learning. And keep trying to do better and be better. And hopefully who we are a year from now will be different than who we are today because we will have grown and had new experiences and challenges.
