Sabrina Brittain is an illustrator and small business owner currently living in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. She is best known for her works depicting a figure in a nature scene. Sabrina’s art has been influenced by childhood travels across the United States, from her tree-filled backyard, to the mountainous terrain of Hawaii. Her earliest works were drawings and paintings of the beautiful visions of nature she experienced.
In May 2018, Sabrina graduated Summa Cum Laude with a B.F.A. in Printmaking at Temple University’s Tyler School of Art. Earlier, in 2016, she launched her website which features a shop selling illustrations and designs on merchandise.
While she was in school, Sabrina created work by studying the beauty of nature through a philosophical lens, relating themes contained in nature scenes to the human experience. She used the printmaking medium to create her illustrations, by translating her digital paintings into CMYK screen prints, or by using a printmaking method to print a black key image to which she later added a paint medium. Her ideas culminated into a visual narrative of seven prints that were displayed at her B.F.A. Thesis Exhibition, Human Nature, in April 2018.
Currently, she is focusing on her online shop, using the profit to fund a comic book that she plans to publish in the near future.
