Owner & full time artist at Gallery Briana with over 17 years of experience drawing & painting colorful, realistic, eye-catching art. I'm a perfectionist and it shows in my exquisitely detailed pieces!! I am dedicated to deeply capturing the emotion and personality of my subject matter. I am formally trained with a Bachelor's Degree in Fine Art from Virginia Commonwealth University in Richmond, VA. VCUArts is ranked the #1 public university arts & design program in the country. I am a compassionate philanthropist and in 2014 donated over $700 worth of paintings & over 50 hours of time helping local charities with projects & festivals. I truly care about my community and am avidly working to permeate the Belmont & Lake Wylie Communities with art. I am PROUD to be an official CLTure artist. CLTure is devoted to the unprecedented collaboration of the most talented independent business, music, arts and culture. My diverse portfolio consists of vibrant watercolor paintings on paper & brilliant oil and acrylic paintings on both wood and canvas. Each piece that I create is extremely unique with meticulous detailing in the brush strokes, remarkable texture and unexpected tiny hidden gems of creativity that come to me during the painting process.
