Artist Statement

Britt finds inspiration in the minutiae of nature; the concealed beauty that goes unnoticed in our everyday lives. Subject matter is supersized, forcing the viewer to appreciate her interpretations on a human scale. Whilst light is often employed to create a sense of awe and wonder.
