About her work, Brittany writes, "I have no goals with art other than to make art. I'm in it for the pleasure of the experience. By day, I'm a tech manager and spend so much time on the left side of my brain. When I come home, I want to play with materials and see how things work together. In some ways, both processes are all about problem solving—how to structure that database, which color works with which. I love that moment when you figure out how to make something work. My influences include everything from the art of graphic novels, tattoo artists and outsider artists, to beauty of masters like Degas and Ingres."
