Recently, Brie travelled to Spain and completed a 2.5 month residency painting 7 murals in that time and connecting with street artists abroad. This experience has lit a fire in Brie that her work needs to travel more. It is her intention to leave her home base more often to make her mark on the world. Through mural work Brie has raised over 10k for her local schools art programs. She has changed landscapes of downtowns’s and helped businesses’s win beautification awards. She sits as the Arts and Culture representative on the Pembina Chamber of Commerce and helps share approacheson how communities can use art as a means to attract tourism and enhance everyday life.
