About the Artist
My name is Darcy Weiss and I grew up in Royal Oak, Michigan. I lived there until I went to college at GVSU with a Degree in Hospitality and Tourism Management, emphasis on Food and Beverage. I worked at a Grand Rapids Hotel for a few years and tried my hand at a normal 9-5 job in an office. I loved the hours but the office setting drove me nuts. I was pregnant with my middle child (2016) when our family attempted having me be a stay at home mom. I have always been a babysitter/nanny or mother since I was 11 years old. I love being around Kids and all of the chaos and hilarity they bring into my life.
We moved into our forever home in Rockford late January of 2020. We closed on our old house on March 3, 2020. 10 days later, the world was shutdown. My middle and I did a homeschool and we were trying new things. We worked on learning some sign language, chalk art, I got back into reading, and lots of Animal Crossing: New Horizons.
I started doing a bunch of chalk art in the driveway when it was warm while we were outside as a way to connect to our neighbors as we would later wave at them from the window. The Amazon Prime Driver (who visited more times than we need to talk about) said I needed to start an instagram for my Chalk Art. After that my friend requested a Tattoo design. It took off from there. My first show was at Herman’s Boy for their October Art in the Barn.
Since that time I have joined the Rogue River Artists Association, became Lead of their Social Media Committee, Asst. Chair for the Art in the Park event on September 10th and our group implemented the Featured Artist for the RRAA! I met Brandi Lancaster at one of the meetings and we clicked instantly. Since then we have done two shows and been an amazing support system for each other I am forever thankful for the Wine to my Doodle!
I am humbled as I do not have a background in art. I never thought this dream would ever be a reality. Thank you for visiting my site, I have worked very hard on this site to share my art with you, my art has been my therapy.
From Covid uncertainty came beauty.
