About Me

Bran­di Pow­ell grad­u­at­ed from Grand­view Col­lege with a BA in Graph­ic Design & Fine Art in 2008 and has been a free­lance artist since graduation.

The female fig­ure has always been the focus of my work, regard­less of medi­um. I am a woman, I under­stand women and I enjoy cre­at­ing work that rep­re­sents what I know. 

My fig­ures are decon­struct­ed in sewing pat­tern style to rep­re­sent that we are all made up of the sum of our indi­vid­ual parts and expe­ri­ences. Unfilled fig­ures are jux­ta­posed against a back­ground of intense tex­ture which rep­re­sents the chaos that sur­rounds us. Our body being the pro­tec­tor and guard against the things that attempt to overpower.

The cre­ation of my work starts with var­i­ous fibers such as cord, rope, vel­vet, wool & cot­ton yarn and final­ly hand­spun art yarns that I spin on my spin­ning wheel.

My work means the world to me. I choose art every­day. Thank you for tak­ing the time to view and con­sid­er my work.
