Unique Layering Technique

From growing up in San Francisco to studying art in Florence, Italy, to being based in Colorado, Britten possess a wide range of artistic abilities and influences.

Her creativity mirrors the landscape of emotion inspired by Colorado’s open space. She paints with the skill and aesthetic sensitivity acquired from experience and a fearless exploration of endless possibilities. Her unique layering technique gives her paintings a luminous quality that range from a peaceful ethereal feeling to a vibrant zing.

“Britten paints with such emotion and energy, capturing the attention of anyone who views her paintings. Her masterpieces aim to empower the viewer and push the traditional limits of humanity,” said Bryan Austin, general manager of The Sebastian-Vail. “Similar to the other Artists, Authors & Athletes speakers, Britten’s talk during the series is sure to inspire fearlessness within all of us.”

Britten was also a speaker at TEDxVail in January 2017, where she embodied the event’s theme “Evolution.” Her talk discussed A.R.T., Aesthetic Revolutionary Theory, which is her philosophy and one she believes connects humanity to beauty.
