Artist + Designer
Brandi is an artist & designer residing in the Midwest. Brandi earned a degree in Graphic Design and Fine Art from Grandview College in 2008 and has been working as a freelance artist ever since.
I work as a freelance designer. My focus is premade branding and marketing materials for professional photographers and other creatives. Magazine layouts and branding packages are my favorite to design, but I design smaller individual pieces such as business cards and/or business forms as well. I also offer premade invitations, announcements & holiday cards.
My current fine art medium is acrylic gouache on watercolor paper. I am focusing on small works using the "alla prima" technique of finishing a single piece in one sitting. These pieces are meant to be similar to quick studies, in which the work is loose with spontaneous bold brushstrokes.
I consider my body of work to be illustrative style portraits, as it has always been, regardless of medium. I love portraits, because they capture a single moment in time. Life is made up of moments that combine to create an entire identity.
Do you take commissions?
Thank you for thinking of me, but no, I do not take on commission work. If I am being honest, working from someone else's vision takes the connection & some of the joy out of the creative process for me. If I can't connect to the subject, then I am not able to create my best work.
