"My name is Blais Bellenoit and I grew up in the rural town of Rehoboth, Massachusetts. My mother was a professional illustrator for most of her life and illustrated such books as "The Talisman" by Stephen King and "The Hundred Year Christmas" by David Morrell. My father was a guitar player and free-lancing musician at times, but for the most part, he worked very hard to provide for his only son. Many of my early days were spent at my mother's side watching her draw or by my father's side listening to him play. As a result, I became an artist and a musician myself. Later on I attended the Rochester Institute of Technology and earned a four year degree in Illustration. Since graduating in 1999, I have maintained a free-lance art career, working in various styles and using several mediums including pen & ink, oil paint, water color, pencil, and clay.
I am always searching for new styles and new techniques to absorb into my experience. It is one of the most important things to me as an artist, to keep pushing the envelope and to keep the journey interesting. It has been my honor, for most of my life, to take part in one of the more amazing experiences in the human reality, pure creation; The expression of the intangible universe and collective conscious."
