Brienna Pruce "Brienna"

My name is Brienna (easy to remember if you think of "brie" like the cheese, though ironically I'm lactose intolerant). I'm a surreal painter. I come from rural Virginia, but I live in Cambridge, England now with my husband. I paint the human condition told through symbols.
My paintings can be construed as my subconscious "junk drawer" made visible. I pull from the deep recesses of the mind, where emotions are heightened and raw. It is here that I find an old conversation with a friend, an embarrassing mistake, a complex relationship, or a moment of pure happiness that I can channel into a painted narrative of human experiences. I use our animal and plant counterparts in our place to examine who we are and what it means to be alive more intimately.
