Intuitive Artist

Brianna Gosselin is an artist possessing the unique ability to paint the world as few of us see it. Densely layered, her work captures the spirit and light of nature, radiating back to viewers with an energy felt more than seen. A graduate of PCVS — celebrated for it’s art programs — Brianna continues to expand beyond her preferred medium of acrylics, drawing a harmonious balance between texture, form and colour.

In addition to her own work, Brianna passes on her love of art as an instructor at her studio and in the past with The Art School of Peterborough.
Acting less as a teacher, and more as a guide, with a style that is engaging and interactive. She inspires students to find and express their own artistic voice.
With 10 years of teaching experience behind her, Brianna created the STUDIO –  a sanctuary dedicated to nurturing the creative soul. Offering a variety of workshops, courses and retreats to both youth and teens, in a variety of mediums. As the director, Brianna thrives from witnessing the joy creating brings to both instructors and students.

Give the gift of art this holiday season with a unique painting by Brianna Gosselin!

I am happy to say I will be taking commissions for Intuitive Animal Portraits this holiday season.
There are only 7 openings for commissions remaining, which will be customized to your preference on size and subject matter.

Intuitive Animal Portraits are a reflection of a beloved pet or favourite animal. They are a colourful, abstract impression created through the artists eyes, inspired by the image and description of words presented about the animal.

For more information, please send an email to art@briannagosselin.com for a consultation.  

From the blog

I have been at a crossroads for the past few months. Two different opportunities presented themselves to me, both amazing and life changing.
Some of you who follow along on social media, may of seen me ask for some advice on which direction to go in. And I thank you for all the sincere and thoughtful words you offered <3
One opportunity was to grow the studio and the courses/workshops I offer. I was to take over the entire space, grow my wonderful team of instructors and push forward to eventually open a larger, ground floor, retail space.
The other opportunity was to pursue my art full time, full-fill two different apprenticeships that presented themselves and bring my artwork to more boutiques and shops in Ontario.
All too often we always post the successful moments on social media.
Which often leads to unrealistic expectations and always trying to be the ideal "perfect" person.

Im here to share a not so successful moment, a moment of growth and learning. I see people so afraid to make mistakes and to fail, that it often leads to holding themselves back and self destructive paths. Which I have no problem admitting doing such myself.

While working on the dresser I am collaborating with Chalk Therapy on, I came to the point of near completion and thought to myself something wasn't working.
Commissions are always an exciting adventure!
I love working with clients to bring a vision they have to life. Its an honour to know they entrust me with such.

This summer I had a special request come to me.
To take a beloved, used guitar and breathe new life into it. One with vibrant colours, peace and the spirit of music.
Together we discussed what she wished for the guitar to visually represent and Im told we achieved it 🙂 Which is always a beautiful and rewarding thing.

Here is the journey from start to finish of this unique guitar.
