“I have decided to give in. To surrender to that which is the most powerful, painful, rewarding and exhausting...my art.”
Originally from a farm in Nebraska, Brianne has been involved in drawing and painting since a small child. She spent many years as a professional art director and designer, painting when time allowed but now, life has turned it’s focus.
On landscapes: “I lean towards more of a mood than a particular place or composition. I am drawn mostly to dramatic skies and the incredible New Mexico palette.”
Plein Air painting was introduced to her by well-known New York artist, Harry Orlyk, who has been documenting American farmland for over thirty years. After that introduction, it became clear what direction to take the art. “To document, capture and preserve our landscapes and history before they disappear or change. Over the years I have been hired by people and land owners to come on-site and paint a special view or a place that holds meaning. Whether it is the old view out a kitchen window to take to a new home or land that has seen generations...this is where I find the most joy, painting the stories.”
On trucks: “I love the mystery. The untold stories that sit behind the wheel - my mind goes wild wondering where that truck has been, what it has seen. There is also a man versus nature attraction too. The colors in the rust that I saw that day will all change with the next rain. Forever changing and slowly decaying.”
Brianne currently lives in Sante Fe, New Mexico, Her works have recently caught the attention of local buyers and collectors. She has also been a published and represented artist in Evergreen, Colorado, Bozeman, Montana and Vail, Colorado.
