🌞 Hi there! Day one of #aprilforartists2020 hosted by @phoebeganderart and today’s prompt is Artist Introduction! 🎨
My name is Brittany and I’m a mixed media artist working primarily with epoxy resin, acrylics, & wood. My absolute favourite is doing seascapes and ocean theme pieces 🌊 ... the colours, the movement... there’s just something about creating even just a small piece of the ocean 💕 I’ve always dabbled in art since I was young. My grandma was an incredible oil paint artist. One time she created this massive oil painting of a tiger’s mouth wide open and a skier skiing down the tongue of the tiger. It’s incredible!! So I guess you could say, art is in my blood. I’ve always enjoyed doing simple sketches and abstract paintings with acrylics on canvas. I love epoxy resin though because it’s sooo versatile, and truly unlike any other medium with a glass like finish.
I live in beautiful Vancouver, BC, Canada 🇨🇦. I’ve also lived in England and Germany, and have travelled to many countries throughout Europe. I know I’m biased, but British Columbia is truly the most beautiful place I’ve still ever been. We have the best of all worlds = the Pacific Ocean, free roaming Orca whales, rainforests, and the snow capped Rocky Mountains. I am so blessed to call this my home! 🌊 🐋 🌲 🏔 My art is inspired by the places I’ve lived and my travels: the West Coast, Italian Riviera, the south coast of England, Mexico, Barbados, and the Pacific Ocean.
My passion for the beauty of Vancouver and B.C. brought me to work in the Tourism industry. My 9-5 is doing Marketing for a train operator that travels through the Canadian Rocky Mountains.
I’m also a self-proclaimed, crazy cat lady! I am a cat mom to @panda_the_tuxedo_cat , a 4 year old tuxedo kitty I adopted from the BC SPCA. He has an extensive collection of bow ties, one for each occasion! 🐈
Thank YOU for all your support, likes and comments along this journey! I hope you enjoy my work as much I enjoy creating it 😊
