About

 

Brittany is a mixed media artist specializing in intuitive and wildlife work.

She has been creating since a young age, drawing imaginary characters, creatures, and writing the stories to go alongside them. Brittany initially began creating in pencil, pen, colored pencil, and digital painting. More recently she has branched out to work primarily in acrylics, watercolors and mixed media methods. While not formally trained in the arts, she studied Psychology at Iowa State University and also became a certified yoga instructor and has since begun to incorporate this into her personal work.

Current work often focuses on purely intuitive painting and following any inkling of a feeling or idea that comes along during the process. She believes expression, exploration and play are imperative in art creation as well as in a happy human.

She currently resides among the hummingbirds in Northern California with her husband and children.
