Brianna was born in Florida, and spent the first half of her life in and around the Bay Area of California. Spending much of her impressionable years on the coast, she gravitates to all things marine. Her biological father was a deep-sea diver in the Navy, so her house was always filled with finds from the ocean. Had she not pursued art, she had grown up wanting to be a marine biologist. She now lives in Fairbanks, Alaska, in the middle of the largest state and the furthest away from the coast, and dreams of the water.
