I’m pretty fortunate to have a circle of incredibly talented, creative friends. Writers, musicians, podcasters, chefs and, of course, artists. My pal Britt Miller falls into the final category, with her absolutely gorgeous paintings.
I make it a point to write about her whenever I can on Geekadelphia, but I’m not the only one who praises the hell out of her work. One of her paintings was recently featured on the boxes of Teuscher’s chocolates, another hangs on the set of CBS3′s Talk Philly… she’s all over the place, from Liberty Place in Center City to the Race Street Cafe in Old City, and is a staple of the Philadelphia First Friday scene.
Alas though, this redheaded vixen is leaving Philadelphia to attend graduate school abroad for a while. This bittersweet news comes with some nice perks though. 1. Making plans to visit her in Paris sometime in the Fall and 2. Buying some of her paintings on the cheap.
Britt frequently sasses me about the various pieces of ‘art’ hanging up in my apartment. And by ‘art’ I mean ‘screenprints purchased on clearance at Urban Outfitters.’ What with all the talented people in the city (her included), why didn’t I have some original works hanging up? Being broke / paying student loans is probably the main issue. But thanks to Britt’s fire sale I’ve finally got some original pieces, like the floral one pictured above (and here on Flickr), hanging in my place.
If you’re unfamiliar with her work, please visit her website. She’s awesome.
