Wellon is a self-taught artist who stumbled upon the creative world of painting. For her, painting has become a means to see Truth all around us. It is a creative exploration of the challenges + beauty of life, rooted always in the hope of our Creator who gives an ever-present steadfastness of hope.
Wellon has a background in English and French (Auburn and Wake Forest Universities), she taught for several years in high school and university settings, developing service learning programs in the nonprofit and community-based setting.
Outside of the studio, Wellon serves as the US Director for Mwana Villages, a ministry empowering the vulnerable in the Republic of Congo. Wellon + Stephen have four (playful, creative, determined and spunky) children: Fitz, Chloe, Daniel and Leila. Their beloved furry family members include rescue dogs Weezy and Hero, Paris the tortoise, and her dream-come-true horse Rosie. The Bridgers reside in Birmingham, Alabama.
