Stormy Mochal • Dubuque, IA • Mixed Media

Living and working in Dubuque, Iowa, I continue to be inspired by the ever-changing marvel of Iowa's country.

Having been an Iowan all my life it only seems natural that each of my images contain a little piece of country; farmhouses, starry-filled skies, birds.

Art is my release from a world full of serious things. It is my connection with my inner child, my playful, not-so-serious self. My images are simple; stars, flowers, people.



Things that make me feel happy. Bright colors, coloring book-like outlines. Scribbles and birds. Free flow writing is often present in my work.

The writing is thought turned to form, only meant to be seen, not meant to be read.

My ideas and images come from all the life that surrounds me, although my imagination tries to take most of the credit. And now from my imagination to yours. Enjoy!

Stormy received her degree in painting and art history from Loras College in Dubuque . She has taught art classes at NICC Community College and to children in her home studio. She is also the illustrator of a children's book titles The Juggler, written by Jeanette Hopkins and published by Ice Cube Press.

Because she is an artist herself, Stormy Mochal's mission is to help artists blossom and sustain themselves. She carries this out by co-owning Outside the Lines Art Gallery and selling the work of both local/regional artists, including her own.
