Artist + Founder
Atlanta native Britt Bass Turner is an abstract artist known for her playful and colorful paintings. She fell in love with color and design at a young age—by way of her interior designer mother—through immersing herself in fabric samples and color swatches. Britt is constantly refining her eye for aesthetics and design, and hopes to bring this sense of exploration and curiosity to her current work.
Britt received a BFA in art education with an emphasis on painting from the Lamar Dodd School of Art at the University of Georgia in 2011. She wanted to “just paint” and live off part-time jobs for a couple years before diving into teaching, but to her greatest surprise and joy, her side job of painting quickly turned into a “grown up” career. Five years after graduating, Britt is still going strong, making paintings and installations fulltime in her Roswell, Georgia studio. She also calls the quiet, Southern town her home, which she shares with her husband, Render Turner, and their Boykin Spaniel, Birdie.
“My work is about process and intuition. I am interested in the juxtaposition of medium, texture, color, and shape. I am ever searching for ways to create subtleties and surprises through fine details and layers. I feel the work takes on its own life, and the subconscious of the painting and my own intuition mutualistically guide the process. Through layering, adding and omitting I explore this artistic relationship until it culminates into a whole, finished piece.”
