About Bart Levy, Artist

Zen for a nerve-jangling world

You’re a busy professional with a demanding career, soccer practices, dance recitals and playdates to ferry the kids around to, dinner dates with your significant other (when you can find the time), and possibly a menagerie of pets at home demanding attention.

Crazy-busy? Yes. Ready to give up and give in to the idea that you can’t find a moment to yourself to get away or even just take a breath?

I understand the demands on your time – the job you love (or don’t), the family you definitely love and want to be there for, soccer games and all, the commute, the long hours and most especially, the feeling that if you don’t step back, just for a minute, you’re going to lose your mind.

That’s where I come in.

I’m Bart Levy and I paint moments of Zen for your home and office. My paintings provide moments of luxurious but affordable escape for the crazy-busy professional. Quiet landscapes. Cheerful flowers. Water with reflections of the sky.

I’ve been there, done that

After many years in the corporate world and as a business owner, I stepped back. Way back, as it happened, to my education as an artist. I recently studied with renowned artists Christaphora Robeers and David Tanner to help scrape the rust off my skills.

“Inspiration is for amateurs,” according to Chuck Close. So everyday I’m in the studio painting, thinking, pushing myself and yet always keeping in mind that there’s enough in the world to jangle your nerves. A calm painting can be a refuge, even if only for a few minutes, where you can take a breath and then, carry on.
