A Story of Collaboration
As family members, with a relationship of best friend sisters, Megan and Wendy have always enjoyed spending time together in and out of the art studio. As artists, with a passion and fascination for the natural world, they decided to join forces and create something special. As co-owners and co-artists of Rainbow Orca Designs, the majority of their creations are a true collaboration. Each artist pours their love and joy into each piece as it is handed back and forth between the two of them.

Each and every piece is designed and hand-crafted with great love, passion, and precision by Pacific Northwest artists Wendy and Megan Bloom. With extensive and diverse backgrounds in both fine arts and performing arts, Wendy and Megan are committed to delivering spectacular, quality, and original art. Inspired by the world of nature, the many colors of a rainbow, and the limitless possibilities of humanity, each piece is intended to spread and share the beauty of joy.
With original designs created by Wendy & Megan, the world of nature is brought to life through beautifully handcrafted paper sculptures. Each piece is made by hand by these two Pacific Northwest artists in Bellingham, Washington. Each sculpture is uniquely one-of-a-kind through the variety of hand-painted & boutique papers along with the wire and bead work. Every wire ornamentation adorning each hanging sculpture is an original freehand design, unique unto itself. Every hanging ornament sculpture is unique!
Our 2-dimensional paintings are original works of art in watercolor or acrylic paint. As artists fascinated by Earth’s beautiful world of nature, along with the full rainbow palette of color, our work is bright, vivid, and colorful. Many of the paintings that we create make beautiful compliments to our other sculptural artwork. We occasionally sell our original paintings, though most often we sell prints of these painting as greeting cards and as prints.
We are inspired by the world of nature, the many colors of a rainbow, and the limitless possibilities of humanity. Working from a diverse palette of colors serves as the inspiration, diversity, and abundance that influence all of our artwork. The raw power, magnificent grace, and glorious beauty of the wild orca, has always been a major influence in our lives. To us the rainbow and the orca symbolize the diversity and colorful brilliance of the “rainbow of life” along with the self-empowered strength and community driven lifestyle of the wild orca.

We are passionate about wildlife and the conservation of the natural systems that support and sustain our very existence and life on Earth. Much of our artwork is directly inspired from this love and appreciation of the world of nature. We believe it is so important to learn from, appreciate, and preserve the natural world around us. Many of our animal sculptures represent iconic and keystone species that need our help and conservation efforts for their future survival. We hope that the compassion, appreciation, and commitment that we feel towards the wild counterparts of our artwork are felt by the art appreciator. As artists and caring global citizens we hope to nurture peoples’ sense of wonder & appreciation for the natural world.
We donate 10% of net profits from all art pieces to conservation or humanitarian organizations or projects. Click to learn more:
