Mixed Media 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 has shared her love for art as an instructor. She worked 10 years  with The Art School of Peterborough and 2 years as the director of her own studio. Where she offered workshops, courses and retreats in a variety of mediums for all ages.
Acting less as a teacher, and more as a guide, with a style that is engaging and interactive. She inspired students to find and express their own artistic voice.
In December of 2018, Brianna closed her public studio and began to work from the sanctuary of her own home. There, she is currently developing a strong body of work, as she continues to evolve her abstract style of art.

From the blog

Here's a little festive flashback to take a look at!

On October 24, 2017 I had the honour of having Lindsday Biscaia from Global news, join me in the studio for some pumpkin carving.
We discussed the variety of ways one can carve pumpkins now, with an endless amount of mixed media choices. With the option of using an actual vegetable pumpkin, foam, ceramic or any other endless possibilities. We also mentioned the workshops I was hosting that year, where people were able to register and come create their own mixed media pumpkin. This was when I still had a large studio open to the public.

Take a look and check out the video 😉
Fall is my favourite season!

The air is crisp, allowing one to breath comfortably (especially after a summer of humidity). Gardens are full of seasonal bounty and the colours are remarkable.

With the cooler evenings here, I love taking full advantage of being able to make cook without heating up an already hot kitchen.
During my last grocery trip I picked up a small cooking pumpkin, intent on using it for something special, but not knowing just exactly what that may be at the time. After a few days of mulling, I was inspired to make a seasonal chilli from scratch.
Do you like donuts?
If so, do I have a fantastic recipe to share with you!

As an artist, sometimes the creativity is blocked and I feel stuck.
Much like everyone does with what they do.
Luckily, I find working in the kitchen to be extremely healing and grounding for my spirit. Also lucky for those around me 😉 As I am most often unable to eat what I make, (due to allergies) my family enjoys my edible creations.
This past weekend I made Old Fashioned, Cinnamon Sugar, Baked Donuts. Created by Chrissie from The Busy Baker.
They were enjoyable to make and with them quickly disappearing into everyones mouths, I take it as a sign for passing the taste test too 😉
