About The Artist
My name is Brianna and welcome to my art page. So here's my story; the cliff notes of course. I’ve been drawing my whole life. I was put in art classes at 5 years old. As an adult, I had taken 10 years off from creating. In 2016 I was inspired to draw again. I took up painting on a dare in the summer of 2018. Turns out I'm pretty decent at it. And here we are - Welcome to Art By Brianna Blue.
Getting Out of My Comfort Zone
I'll be the first to admit, I'm naturally an introvert. But if I only did what was comfortable to me, I'd never grow. I would have never interacted with some of the influential people that I'm been fortunate enough to meet. I've met and interacted with musicians, actors, comedians, directors, and other creatives...all since deciding to create again. Some of the people I've been able to connect with because of my art are Academy Award Winning Director, Spike Lee and actress DeWanda Wise. Grammy Nominated Artist, Kehlani and up and comer Londynn B, and comedian, actress, and edutainer Amanda Seales from HBO's Insecure. None of this would have happened had I not stepped outside of my comfort zone and put myself out there. Pretty cool, huh?
All of this started with a thought. Those thoughts became goals; goals became action items. But everything starts with what you believe that you're capable of doing -- then it's time to put that belief to action. You'd be amazed of what's possible when you set your mind to it. And the funny part is, I'm just getting started. Except for my interactions with Kehlani, which began in November 2016, all of the others happened only AFTER I created my art instagram @ArtByBriannaBlue in March of 2019. I say all of this to say, if you have a goal, a dream, a passion -- don't be afraid to go for it. #GoForthAndBeGreat
