You can learn more about Skye Joubert below:

poppy skye finalSkye Joubert is a real life mixed media artist who lives in Ojai, California at her main studio aldea del ciELo. She hosts workshops at her studio and has art hanging in establishments around town.

Skye also has pieces hanging in Miracle Mile Medical Center in Hollywood, CA as well as Hadavi Spa in Long Beach, CA. Dedicated followers of her work like Writer and Musician Robert Gregory Browne and Doctor Gil Tepper and others enjoy collecting her whimsical characters.

She is also a member of The SketchBook Project where her TeaBag Art Sketchbook is stored at the Brooklyn Art Museum. Her second SketchBook will go live there soon!

She also was a proud participant in the 14th annual Artwalk on Raglan Shire, Second Life (2019) which featured 200 second life artists. The following video shows a sample of the Artwalk and Skye’s artwork got a lot of time! Catch it at 24- 27 seconds into the video.

Her childlike folk art boldly explores her love of colors. Having been raised in an artistic home with three life-like artists it took her a while to re-visit her artistic style. “I can sketch life-like art, I just have no fun doing it! I love the spontaneity of splashing colors on an old piece of wood or cardboard, mapping a face with pencil and then – boom letting the character develop itself. It is like childplay! I live to have paint on my hands”.

She proudly recycles pieces of wood and cardboard in her individual effort to make less trash, or rather turn her trash into art. She has painted mermaids on fabric chairs and painted faces on guitars (in both worlds) as well as TV trays and Tables. Items that had once seen a better day spring to life again with her bold colors and characters.

In Second Life she lives with her Second Life Family and boyfriend on (beYou Affiliate) Joubert’s BeFarm Grocery at Joubertville, True Love (73, 199, 21) which is home to a working beYou Farm, beYou Grocery Store, and coming soon a beYou craft center located in her SL studio where she holds RL Art Sessions. “It is so great that today we can expand our knowledge and learning because of the Internet. There are tons of YouTube videos out there for FREE – I even have produced some!

Come visit RustyTruck Art Gallery and ciELo ArtPlay and explore what Skye’s art and beYou are all about. If you are interested in her real life art or workshops held in Ojai, CA email her at skye.sings@gmail.com.
