Client Reviews below.  


Mark "Marco" Bell

Marco received his BFA after graduating from Ringling College of Art and Design in 1976, in Sarasota, Florida.
Marco was an art director for a large manufacturing company for several years. He serviced accounts that included Hallmark Cards, Disney World and Six Flags. A freelance job in 1980 made him realize how much he missed painting, and his subsequent successes propelled him into the world of mural painting. His desire to interpret his clients' vision has become his passion, and the driving force for Bella Arte Studio.


Monica Spain

Monica received her BFA in 1978 from Atlanta College of Art in Atlanta, Georgia. Freelancing in advertising, Monica successfully worked as designer and art director in graphic design for many years for companies such as Coca Cola, Macy's and numerous other high end retail stores. Monica wanted to expand her art, where upon meeting Marco and collaborating on several projects, they discovered they loved art and one another. The result is Bella Arte!
