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.

Vegetable Garden Printmaking

At the moment, these have been my favourite printmaking cards created thus far.
I’ve been preparing a large inventory, to send out into the world this month for you all. We could all use a little bit of happiness from the garden!

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.
