By her own definition, Ore’al Bluntson is an artist. Her confidence in this declaration, however, has not always been apparent. Growing up in West Palm Beach, Bluntson says she always loved art. “I can’t remember a time when art was not apart of my life.” Bluntson says. But her fondness for art was repelled by her social belief that all artists were either strange, weird, crazy or starving.
It wasn’t until a little over a year ago that Bluntson says she felt confident enough in her artistic abilities and work to begin sharing it with others. She now challenges herself to apply for at least three art exhibitions per year, and offers classes that allow her to share her passion with others.
Ultimately, Bluntson wants Orealjinal Desijns to crossover into home décor, another passion area for her. “You may walk into Target and say I want that Orealjinal Desijn pillow one day.” She says. One thing is certain when speaking with Bluntson, her love for art and creative expression radiates through her words, voice inflections and mannerisms. She is indeed an artist and finally at peace with the world knowing her secret.
