Brittany Stafford is a Twin Cities artist known for her jewel-like portraits of female figures. Her paintings capture a foreboding dream-scape, populated by women who simultaneously fill the roles of princess and monster. She seeks to subvert conventions of Western historical art by combining visions of stereotypically defined beauty with the unusual, or macabre. She has studied Sequential Art, Illustration, and Dance at the Savannah College of Art and Design, and will be receiving a Bachelor of Arts degree from the University of Minnesota in May of 2018. Her work has been exhibited at HangFire gallery in Savannah Georgia, and the University of Minnesota's Quarter Gallery. She is a recipient of the Carter Prize in Painting, and theJoyce Lyon Scholarship.
Brittany owns three overweight cats, and likes to collect superstitions. Currently she resides with her life partner in a small haunted apartment in Saint Paul, MN. At any moment she can be found painting, sewing, reading comics, or tending to her large family of succulents and orchids.
