Welcome to our online original art store. We paint in watercolor, acrylic, and mixed media collage. We also offer workshops in drawing, watercolor, and acrylic mixed media collage.
We are natives of North Dakota and have strong, old-fashioned family values. We enjoy helping people find the art they want for their homes or gift-giving. We like variety: of subject matter, of art mediums, and price points. We want everyone to have to access to strongly-designed original art that shows our passion for life: people, birds, animals, sports, plants, landscapes, and anything else that suits our fancy. God gave us a desire to work hard and we want to share the fruits of our labor with you.
Beverly and Barbara
The Benda Twins
Art has been our passion since we were toddlers learning to scribble with crayons. We have both painted and created throughout our lives, with Barbara working as a professional artist and licensed instructor for over 35 years. Beverly is a Licensed Registered Dietitian and Board Certified Coach who has used her skills to assist Barbara in teaching workshops in drawing and painting. We have painted prolifically for years and give God the glory for the work we do and share with others. We specialize in selling original art, not prints or copies, as we believe originals will never lose their value. Our online store is our way of reaching a broader clientele and passing on our inspirational work to those who appreciate original art.
