Artfully Awake


Justin & Brittany Dunfee

Welcome to Artfully Awake! We are so happy you are here. My name is Justin Dunfee and I am an artist, a musician, husband, and father to two amazing children. My wife, Brittany, also helps with the art when she isn't busy teaching. We have collaborated together to create the pieces you see here and are very excited to see what the future has in store for us. 

We started building artistic furniture  together in 2010 and we soon realized that between our creativity and passions, we could really make something meaningful and unique. We are very passionate about the meaningful and philosophical aspects of life and you may have noticed that this passion is embedded into our artwork. 

In fact, the name "Artfully Awake" says it all. When one is "awake", they are aware of what matters most in this world. They lead their life with love, selflessness, and integrity. They seek a path of continual growth, awareness, and wisdom. We hope that our artwork is thought provoking and raises awareness to certain societal aspects, such as wildlife conservation, personal growth, and whole health with mind, body, and spirit. In this way, we hope that through our artwork, we can help those around us on their journey to become not only "fully awake", but ARTfully awake.

charity involvement

We believe that in order to create real change, more than just conversation needs to be had. Because of this, we will be donating a portion of proceeds towards various non-profit organizations that match the piece sold. We may change the charities we will be donating to, so please see below for a current list of charities. You may also see the type of charity we will be donating to within the description of each art piece under our "collections" section.
