Born and raised in Columbus, Ohio, previously residing in Grandview, Ohio, Brittni has recently relocated to Mt. Gilead, Ohio where she continues to create her art. She has a BFA, with a focus in Art and Technology, from The Ohio State University. Her degree has enabled her to utilize her creativity as a Front End Developer as well as an Artist. Even though her day job might be in the technology space, both passions utilize her creativeness.
She explores mixing and combining colors in her paintings and designs. Some painting techniques include using pallet knives of various sizes, various additives like liquim impasto and crackle paste to create texture and depth, and using resin or varnish as a finishing agent. Her creativity extends beyond painting and design and into the wood working realm, where she creates custom frames for her paintings.
Brittni and her husband Mike are in the process of opening a winery in Mt. Gilead, Ohio called Cote Winery. She is combining both worlds to include her paintings on the wine labels and an art gallery within the tasting room. Head over to the winery website if you're curious about the opening date.
