Brie began her career as an artist in Wisconsin, and moved to Portland, Oregon in 2016. She received her BFA and BA in Art History from the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee. After moving to the Pacific Northwest, she fell in love with the landscape and began combining science and ecology into her lifelong art practice. Past adventures include studying painting techniques in Florence, Italy and participating in an artist residency in Burgundy, France last spring. You can find Brie with a sketchbook in the woods crafting up new ideas for her next project. She is very excited to be a Studio Technician at the Sitka Center this summer.
