Brittany Hauser, Paola Member Since November 2008 Artist Statement I have loved art all of my life. My latest discovery is photography!!! It is my favorite way to express myself and capture feelings, emotions and what I "see". My mom has been a tremendous help to me in pursuing a career in the art field, and I am very thankful for that. Photography is my favorite medium of art and I have taken every photo class available while in school. I also received an incredible amount of help from my teachers to become the best that I could possibly be. They always pushed me to do bette, and I appreciate that more than they know. My little brother has ended up being my captive subject quite often, even when he did not want to be! I love my little brother, he is a very good subject to photograph and he is quite the ham when he wants to be, making photographing him fun. I am always looking for ways to improve, and would love any feedback and suggestions you may have for me, as I am trying to find direction and how best to express myself while telling a story with my camera. My goal is that others will view my photo's and it will make them smile, or just pause and think about what I am trying to say with each one.
I am currently working at D'Marie Gallery, and have had the opportunity to meet many artists in person. Some are touring in Europe and the USA right now. Their work is fantastic and so are the people. They have been very generous in sharing their thoughts and ideas, and in talking with them, it has made it seem a reality that I can pursue my dream of supporting myself through my artwork and photography.
