"I create not to be seen but to be experienced, allowing the viewer to make an honest connection between my work and their own emotions"
Brittany Lee is a self-taught abstract painter from Baton Rouge, Louisiana whose travels have been one of her biggest influences in her artwork.
"Being able to see and experience new places, people, cultures and landscapes brings new vision and ideas to my composition. Something as simple as a flower pot sitting outside an old door in the New Orleans French Quarter brings just as much life to my work as a mountain top view overlooking one of the most beautiful cities in Thailand. My compositions are very distinctive for their bold use of color and textured layers of acrylic paint and other mediums. Never do I have a plan or idea when I begin, I let the brush take over and upon completion I feel as though the reason was there all along. I create not to be seen but to be experienced, allowing the viewer to make an honest connection between my work and their own emotions." - Brittany Lee
