Brecken Bird

My work is about telling stories. Using linear markings made with a graphite pencil on paper I create intricate scenes consisting of a wide range of textures and values. I am inspired by women, art history, myths, legends, and fairytales. My work frequently deals with the human figure (primarily the female figure), and all manner of flora and fauna. Through the use of allegorical figures and symbols I explore female perspectives in religion, mental and physical health, and relationships.
