Raised on the East Side of Buffalo, Obsidian Bellis (they/them) was always enamored with drawing. A majority of Bellis’s artistry has developed through self-teaching and mentorship. Bellis’ love of nature, spirituality, and imagination have led them to their authentic voice.
They move between mediums and find freedom in the ability to tell stories from the places they imagine and navigation of personal freedom.
Additionally, they have established a creative brand entitled Maybe Heaven offering prints, wearable merchandise, and accessories of their original designs.
