She received her M.Ed. in Secondary Education (2019) and B.A. in Studio Art (2014) from the University of New Hampshire.

This piece is part of Bri's Enorm ous Tiny Art Show #31 collection. These nocturnes have been born in yet another pandemic winter. In these long months comprised of short days, finding powerful color just before the sun sets becomes an exciting hunt. A sliver of light on the drive home. The glow of snow at the edge of day. The rich darks of backlit tree lines. These little paintings represent moments of solace and the awe of finding powerful visual moments in a season when the landscape can feel overwhelmingly gray.
