Fine Art Prints:

My fine art prints are now available exclusively through Bellevue Fine Art via my Etsy shop. If you don't see the print you're looking for, let me know, and I'll make it available on Etsy. The quality of the papers, colour matching, and the attention to detail at BFA is *far superior* to what is currently offered through DeviantArt. Check out the BFA feature in Art Scene Seattle or the BFA website for more info.


Commissions are open! If you would like to commission a drawing or a painting, let me know. Please allow 2 weeks for completion of watercolours and pencil portraits. For more info, please contact me directly via email: (I check it more frequently than DeviantArt). Check out my Etsy shop for details about custom portraits!

Ongoing Projects:

Art Scene Seattle - My blog! A contemporary artist's exploration of the Emerald City's creative culture through art walks, events, and exhibitions. Here you can find: the monthly Art Fix, art walk schedules, info on local art spaces, calls for art, local artist features, local business features, artist resources, and more!

BC Duncan Design: Fine Art & Accessories - My Etsy site! Original watercolours, fine art prints, custom pet portraits, mechanical birds, clockwork bugs, faerie tale illustrations, steampunk accessories, and other fun and exciting things I make!

Echo Echo Gallery - In November 2013, I became a member of the Echo Echo studio art collective in the Greenwood neighbourhood of Seattle!
In addition to helping with curating, installation, and publicity for the monthly 2nd Friday Art Walks, I'll finally have a space to play with oils!

Curating - I develop concepts for art exhibits, coordinate with artists to install work, design flyers and press releases, manage social media events, and oversee art sales. I am currently the art director at Trabant Coffee & Chai, Laika Lounge, and the Georgetown Liquor Co. I regularly assist with curating, art installation, and digital design for multiple art spaces in the Northwest.

I am the co-founder of the Seattle Arts Coalition along with my friend and fellow artist, Rachel Setzer. The Seattle Arts Coalition (SAC) is a non-profit organisation dedicated to promoting artist engagement in the Seattle community and beyond. As an organisation, we sponsor events for artists and artisans, including exhibitions, art fairs, and forums. The SAC offers curating, installation and PR services, as well as advice and questions answered to artists interested in showing and selling their work in the Northwest.

When I'm not art walking and raising awareness about events in the Seattle arts community, I am concentrating my energies on some new bodies of work: "Clockwork Swarm", "Imperfect Machine", "Mechanical Aviary", and "Tangled Marionette".

Support your local art scene!

bcduncan's Profile Picture
Braden Duncan
Artist | Professional | Traditional Art
United States
I am a portrait artist by trade, imperfect by choice, and a cog in the machine of human mythology by default. I draw my inspiration from the peculiar minutiae of the human form, symbolism and mythology, the empty spaces left by missing friends, and the intricate elegance created by the convergence of biological and mechanical elements.
