B. J. Lloyd by B. J. Lloyd | The Doctor T. J. Eckleburg Review
“I enjoy mixing different media. It’s like the visual artist’s version of a DJ’s mash-up. Most of these examples of my artwork involve acrylic paint, photography, drawing, and/or collage. I know that, traditionally, an artist is advised to concentrate primarily on one medium, but I can’t help myself! In spite of that, my work makes me feel good, and I hope it does the same for others.” After graduating from Kean University of NJ with a Fine Arts degree, B.J. Lloyd taught art for awhile, created the art for many album/CD covers, and opened her own public relations company. Now a full-time working artist, she creates in Acrylics, Mixed Media, Collage, Digital Fine Art/ Photography, Assemblages, and whatever else strikes her fancy. Lloyd was the Featured Artist in this year’s Island City Art Walk, Wilton Manors, FL. Her work has been exhibited in NYC; CT; RI; Artoconecto/Art Basel, Miami, FL; Brooklyn, NY; Los Angeles, CA; OH; MA; Cambridgeshire, UK; and more. She will have a solo art show at CityCenter, Danbury, CT Sept. 19 – Oct. 13, 2011. Awards include the Art Buzz Graphics & Acrylics Competitions, four “Special Recognition” Awards from Upstream People Gallery Juried Exhibitions, and a Body-of-Work Award from Mosaic Globe. Her work has been published in the Art Buzz Collections 2009 & 2010, Suspense Magazine, Hidden City Quarterly, CT Creative, The Bullet, Sonata, Status Hat Press, Art Hash and more. Lloyd is an active member of the Housatonic Valley Cultural Association.
