Britney Drumheller has a degree from the Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising in Los Angeles, but moved back to her hometown of Cannon Beach – she could not leave the beauty and inspiration of the beach behind. Her work functions as symbolic expressions relating to the value people attach to the North coastal tidelands and its marine life.
Art has always been a part of me; in all of its forms, it enriches my life. After graduating from the Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising in Los Angeles, my career in fashion design focused on fashion illustration – until my Dad suggested I try to sell some beach-inspired art. I went to the beach, studied all of the creatures in the tide pools, and tried to put onto paper my discoveries.
My good friends suggested I bring my sketches to Fairweather House & Gallery in Seaside, and I was so pleased to be able to put my art in such a beautiful gallery.
My favorite media is to work with markers and colored pencils. The markers I use can give the allure of looking like watercolors, but can also give you crisp, clean lines. I enjoy working within the contrast of the freedom of watercolor and the preciseness of markers. Always sketching when I have a chance, I can get lost in a sketch for hours.
“Through my art, I hope to beautifully translate the sea life that I do so dearly love and honor.” the North coastal tidelands and its marine life.”
Fairweather’s launched Britney Drumheller in an emerging artist exhibition several years ago.
