It’s nice to meet you! I’m Jade Woodruff. I’m an artist.
I created Bento Studios in 2007 because I love sharing my art.
I’ve dabbled in just about every medium ranging from paint to digital media but I really love working with COPIC markers, graphite, oil pastels, and pen/ink the most. Illustration, Fine Art, and Graphic Design are my fortes.
In 2010, I was accepted as a member and in 2012, I became an Exhibiting Artist at the Island Art Association in Fernandina Beach, Florida. You can periodically find my work on display and for sale there during the Art Nouveau shows. I have received dozens of awards for my fine art and video productions. I also exhibit and sell my art at a variety of trade shows and multi-cultural conventions throughout the Southeast region.
Currently, I’m working on my new graphic novel series entitled Game Over. It’s about a gamer named Tristan who wishes that he could play video games instead of taking tests in school. One day, his wish ends up mysteriously coming true and, every time he takes a test thereafter, he is virtually transported to a video game realm. If he beats the game, he passes the test! The fourth book of the series was released in spring of 2015 and I’m working hard to get books five through seven out this year as well.
I’m available for commissions and offer reasonable, affordable pricing options. If you’re interested in having custom art made for you, please contact me at jade(at)bentostudios.com. I usually offer a 1-week turn around on all commissions.
Thank you for your continued support! I look forward to seeing you soon!
