Meet Jordan Ramsey of Bonhomie Art
Art started as a hobby. But initially, I was in competition with my sister in a sense. I have a hidden talent of singing and so does she. But she also does art, so I figured “if she can do what I do, I can do what she does” and I say down and painted a watercolor sunflower. Instantly I fell in love with painting. I’d always been drawn to acrylic pour and resin videos but had never tried them. The next thing I painted was Chuckie from Rugrats. And it was hit. Everyone loved it. I began painting other animated characters and knew I’d found my passion. I began to eat, sleep and breathe art. I tried my hand at pouring and knew that was for me. I love the unknown factor of it. I can pour whichever way I want and it’s still going to come out completely different than I could’ve imagined. And no two pieces can ever be identical. I love it. Now I do tumblers, coasters, and anything else i can get resin to stick to!
Art is a very pricey thing to pursue. I was unemployed at one point and would sacrifice my money for bills? To but supplies. Because my faith in my craft was that strong. I planned my first art show in a little less than 1 month. Paid for the venue, djay, and all my art supplies/decor out of pocket. That day was by far one of my most cherished memories. Quite honestly I STILL haven’t caught up on bills that I fell behind in but I know that one day my art will be fund my life in a way that bills won’t ever be a concern again.
Bonhomie art started as my hobby. But quickly became its own ray of sunshine. I specialize in resin work. Do coasters, tumblers, and canvas art are all fan favorites. I get a lot of requests for clock as a well. But at the current moment with the change of seasons.. tumblers have become my most popular items. I’m most proud of the growth and support my company has seen in the last year. We’ve only been established since 2019 and have seen a constant influx of orders and promotions. Bonhomie means good vibes, and that’s me to a T. I’m all about positivity.
Success to me, would be measured best through comfort. If whatever I’m doing makes me happy? And I’m comfortable with the decision or current standing, I consider it a success. I just want to get to a place where my art can be the only thing I do. My main source of income but also I get to fill my day with the one thing I love. When I’m doing art I’m at peace. And anything that brings you peace is what you’re meant to do.
