Entirely self taught, Artist Mindie Gum-Grivell works with both traditional & digital mediums. Most known for her colorful and wildly imaginative artworks, Mindie enjoys painting & illustrating a variety of subject matters and her execution always results in a bright and somewhat cartoon-like piece of art! 


It wasn't until 2010 when she first tried her hand at paint on canvas and struck with the insane creative force driving her to pursue more seriously. In 2014 her little family moved to Indianapolis, IN, which is where she began her art journey. With full-time focus she developed Aries Art NW, her personal studio & pop-up gallery for showcasing her variety of creations and concepts. Showcasing her artworks in public galleries, art exhibits and art fairs in and around Indianapolis, IN, Mindie has also had the opportunity to exhibit her artwork in other Midwest cities including Chicago, IL. During this time she also curated and executed her own art-tour of pop-up events & exhibits through Washington & Oregon in May of 2018.


In 2019 they returned to their roots in SW Washington State where she now happily resides with her spouse. She's almost always hunched over some sort of craft project or out showing her creations, but she also enjoys watching cartoons, reading and traveling. All things that also inspire her creatively. 


Mindie is partnered with the leading world-wide organization of female illustrators, animators, artists and comic creators Girls Drawin' Girls. Her artworks can be seen in their weekly social media updates and at their GDG convention & gallery events world-wide, including SanDiego Comic Con & more!
