Arabella Proffer is a painter, designer, and co-founder of an indie label called Elephant Stone Records.
Her loose narrative themes revolve around a fascination with punk rock, aristocrats, Renaissance fashions, aging socialites, pre-code cinema, gothic divas and rock ‘n’ roll groupies.
Arabella attended Art Center College of Design in Pasadena, CA before receiving her BFA from California Institute of the Arts, and has participated in solo and group exhibitions throughout North America and Europe. Born in Ann Arbor, Michigan, she has taken up residence in many cities including Laguna Beach, Los Angeles, and Boston. She currently lives in Cleveland, Ohio, with her husband and an evil white cat named Milkshake.
If you happen to be in the Lakewood, Ohio area May 1, 2010, Arabella’s work will be exhibited alongside many other artists at The Screw Factory Artists studio for a spring open studio event held that Saturday, from 1-8pm. The event is free and open to the public.
Also, May 25 – 19, 2010, Arabella’s work will be exhibited at the BoxHeart Gallery.
