Brie Henderson was born in Georgetown, Texas in 1996 and raised with her seven other siblings in Mid-Missouri. She had a knack for anything artistic as a child and was coloring and drawing constantly. As a result she decided to pursue fine arts at Texas State University. Over the course of studying at Texas State, she experienced a gradual self-reflection that further developed her skill level, style, and the root of her desire to create. Her work explores color variations, mark making, and the balance of texture between the figure and ground. She uses color and mark to describe the movements in her figurative work. The incorporation of unexpected colors with built up texture in specific areas creates a cohesive piece that conceptually speaks about a person’s history and how it has shaped their true desires.
