"Planting native species in our gardens and communities 
is increasingly important, because indigenous insects, 
birds and wildlife rely on them. Over thousands, 
and sometimes millions, of years they have co-evolved
 to live in local climate and soil conditions."
~David Suzuki
Art by Nibblfest artist, Fran Brooks


"I think penguins are the most human of all the birds, 
which may be why people love them. 
They're cute, they stand upright 
and they look like they're wearing tuxedos...."
~Shia LaBeouf
Art by Nibblfest artist, Penny Stewart

"Birds are a miracle because they prove to us there is a finer, 
simpler state of being which we may strive to attain."
~Douglas Coupland 
Art by Nibblfest artist, Fran Brooks

"I really like birds. 
Everyone always wants me to say 
that I can't stand to go near them, 
just like they want Janet Leigh 
to confess that she can't bear to take a shower. 
Well, I'm sorry to disappoint you...."
~Tippi Hedren

Art by Nibblfest artist, Tammy Gulat

"Everyone likes birds. 
What wild creature is more accessible to our eyes and ears, 
as close to us and everyone in the world, 
as universal as a bird?"
~David Attenborough

Art by Nibblfest artist, Jenny Luan Frye

"I hope you love birds too. It is economical. 
It saves going to heaven."
~Emily Dickinson


Art by Nibblfest artist, Penny Stewart

"The desire to fly is an idea 
handed down to us by our ancestors....
who looked enviously on the birds soaring freely through space... on the infinite highway of the air"
 ~Wilbur Wright
Art by Nibblfest artist, Fran Brooks




"When I see a bird that walks like a duck 

and swims like a duck and quacks like a duck, 

 I call that bird a duck..."

~James Whitcomb Riley


Art by Nibblefest artist, Jenny Luan Frye



"I'm terrified of heights, 
but I think there's something really beautiful 
about birds and soaring, 
having a bird's-eye view of the world..."

~Lindy Booth

Nibblefest Artist Interview: Roopa Dudley

Nibblefest Artist Interview: Roopa Dudley

Artist Roopa Dudley

How long have you been creating art (and/or) selling it online? 

I have been creating art since I was in Kindergarten. I started selling in 2011 as a Chess Painter.

How did you first hear about Nibblefest and when did you first start Nibblefesting? 
I learned about Nibblefest accidentally when I stumbled upon Art Of Patience – Artist’s Page of Patience. Then I looked over at the rules and decided to join in.

Art by Roopa Dudley

What do you enjoy about Nibblefest? 

I enjoy the whimsical themes that Nibblefest lets us participate in. It really gets my creative juices flowing and I feel a sense of accomplishment by being able to produce small paintings that usually end up being sold. I have met an art collector who now is a dear friend of mine just by competing every now and then on Nibblefest. I really like the concept behind this. Although, I would prefer it more if they raise the minimum bid to $4.99.

 Art by Roopa Dudley

Who are your Favorite artistic influences?

I am heavily influenced by the art of M.C Escher, Paul Gauguin, Giorgio de Chirico, Marc Chagall, Frieda Kahlo, Tamara De Lempicka, Edward Hopper and Rene Magritte.

Art by Roopa Dudley

Tell us something interesting about you that many people online don't already know.

I am Sapiosexual.

What is your favorite Nibblefest ever sold?

Epicurean Vortex a small 6”x 6” painting is my favorite to date that I have sold. It was my first outer space painting as well and I bejeweled it so basically my first mixed media painting too.

Art by Roopa Dudley

What would be your Nibblefest dream theme? 

  I like the versatility that Nibblefest offers when it comes to themes. I would say Enchanted Forest and Robots would be my dream theme.

Art by Roopa Dudley

What do you do to drive traffic to your Nibblefest auction(s)?

 I post it on all my social media. Twitter, Facebook Page, Personal Facebook Profile, Google+ and LinkedIn. 

 Art by Roopa Dudley

What are you working on right now? (Side projects? Wip?)

  I have two incomplete Four Seasons painting that I am looking forward to finishing and have been slacking off on those.
Another one is “Crypto-Knight’s Trophy”. This is my most graphic painting to date.

Where can people find your work?

 My work is available on my website:
