Artist Spotlight: Arabella Proffer

24 Apr

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.
