Hi, I'm Brittany! I am a graphic designer, proofreader, and art director by day, at www.paperglee.com. But while I love clean design, typography, and page grids, I find getting off the screen feeds my creativity in both avenues.
Here, you'll see explorations of texture, color, humor, lettering, light and shadow, and the randomness watercolor is best at. I'm inspired by watching nature take back over from the built environment—healing creation—so in my work you'll see lots of nature and human interactions with it—from plants in sidewalk cracks and yards to rusted machines and untamed beaches. I have two young kids, and watching them explore the world is a great inspiration to me. I'd love for ladybugs and honeybees to still be around for them when they're grown, and I do what I can with my vote, my trash, and my time to make that happen.
I'm also a Lutheran. You'll see this come through in my art as I add calligraphic elements outlining some of my favorite verses, quotes, and hymns to some of my pieces. I'm amazed by the detail and beauty in the smallest creations and the epic skies we're blessed with here in Colorado.
Please enjoy the watercolor explorations you see here, let me know what you think, and reach out if there's something you'd like to commission! I'm always up for a new challenge.
By purchasing from me, you're lifting up awesome causes I support with my time and/or money: Habitat for Humanity, Lutheran Immigrant and Refugee Services, and the National Parks Conservation Association. Let's make the world a better place!
