Welcome

I want to create happiness and share it.

I am grateful to have shared my art and fitness over nearly two decades around the world including both coasts of the United States, Hawaii, England, Japan, Germany, and soon a new adventure.

Art

Ever since kindergarten, Brienna Pruce knew she wanted to be an artist. In 6th grade, she began taking college art courses after school. She enjoyed the Gifted Program at her school, summer Governor’s School Programs, and her artwork was published on the cover of Creative Kids magazine.

She skipped her senior year of high school to become one of the first double BFA graduates at Sweet Briar College (SBC). She has a BFA in Creative Writing and Studio Art with an Honors Degree in Highest Honors in Studio Art and a minor in Art History. She earned a Graduate Fellowship at Savannah College of Art and Design (SCAD) where she received her MFA in Painting and the Outstanding Academic Achievement Award in Painting. She’s had the honor of enjoying Artist Residencies as a Forsyth Fellow at the Virginia Center for the Creative Arts (VCCA) and a Professional Development Grant Recipient at the Sustainable Arts Center in Georgia.

Sharing a new perspective with others through her artwork is what she enjoys the most. Brienna works primarily with acrylic paint on canvas sheets and loves taking her traveling studio around the world.
