britt=on fire

britt hermann

i'm honored to brag about one of the many talented students from art nest. britt hermann folks had only painted, like twice, maybe 3 times pre art nest??? how is this possible? this woman exudes MAD talent. dripping from her fingers! the moon and stars are aligned for this fine lady got home, bought a high quality printer, painted up a feast and now has an etsy shoppe for us all to enjoy!!!

yay! thank you sweet one. i really, really can't say enough about britt and her beautiful mysterious paintings and drew barrymore doppleganger self (even the flight attendant inquired). ha!

above is the painting (her first sale of many!) that i bought from her. i love it so. perfect. it reminds me of donnie darko in the best way. subtle and sweet and a bit spooky perhaps? you can find the "she prefers white" print here. 

and here is the "rocks + taffy" painting she painted in my class-- she spent forever getting that blue just right and it's well worth it. and this incredible "she is flight" print from kelly's class. aren't they amazing?!

very, very proud if i can speak on behalf of all the nest :) anyone else have a new or refreshed etsy shop to share??

I love that you and Kelly are showing some love to a new artist. Nothing better than an artist with a generous spirit.

I am so jealous that I wasn't at ArtFest!

Her work is mysterious, and enchanting at the same time. I've been following her blog for sometime, and she has a surplus of creativity running through her veins...

Hi Mati! Thanks for all of your inspiration and for sharing Britt's work with us. She has such a beautiful style, and I'll keep an eye on her Etsy shop...and maybe I'll even get to meet her - I see that she and I live in the same town!!! Coincidence? Probably not!

I just recently got my confidence up to share some of my work on Etsy, too. It was a big gutsy step for me to start, but I knew that to make any sales at all on Etsy, that I really HAD TO open up a shop there! LOL! I'm at

Hi Mati,
I must say thank you, again, for introducing me to Britt's work. It turns out that we live in the same town !!! and we are getting together for coffee next week with another local blogger friend Nikki (at One Faithful Step). Small, small, small world, and so cool!
