Brittany

Back in 2005, when she was still in high school, Brittany was asked to create an artwork inspired by the Yoruba people of Africa. Inspired by the importance of art to her heritage, Brittany started teaching herself to work with beads.

Brittany is a smart, driven young woman, and is also living with cerebral palsy and limited financial resources. Starting from pony beads – “simply the cheapest bead I can buy” – and an internship with Access Gallery, Brittany has become a self-taught, self-made artist capable of working with any material.

Brittany is a vocal advocate for people with disabilities. In our eyes, Brittany is the modern-day Wonder Woman for the disabled and artist communities alike.
