Born and raised in Mississauga, Ontario, Briar currently resides in the beautiful City of Burlington. After earning a Bachelor of Commerce, honours degree from Guelph University, she explored careers in finance as well as film and television production. Briar was bit by the bug while finger painting with her children. She instantly felt the thrill of changing a pristine piece of white paper into something that had never been before. That led to a daily endeavor of expanding her knowledge and skills in the realm of visual arts. Her work highlights the mathematical sequencing that is the foundation of our reality. Hoping to engage the observer and compel them to take a breath and look closer.
