Mother is a recurring character in Brittany’s landscape narrative. She is in the river, both quiet and calm, tirelessly and gracefully flowing, day and night. She gives, and guides life, gradually carving canyons through the rock. As a mother, Brittany draws inspiration from her two young children. Like Mother Nature, the matriarch is sensitive to the needs of her young, constantly guiding, inspiring, teaching, providing, listening, and protecting.
Brittany Scott made her way to Utah to attend Brigham Young University and has since fallen in love with the high desert, western landscape and uniqueness of downtown Provo. After completing her degree in 2008, she has established herself near the center of Provo’s creative community. She currently leads a community of artists called Creative Collaborative, who meet regularly to discuss living a successful creative lifestyle. Each month guest speakers share their experiences and insights on authenticity, discovery and helping others along the way.
English-born artist Jenna von Benedikt spent many childhood weekends venturing British countryside on horseback and catching the Tube to explore London city life. In 2000 her family moved to Utah’s Rocky Mountains, and von Benedikt’s interest in art deepened leading her to graduate with a Studio BFA at Brigham Young University, with a study abroad at the Santa Reparata International School of Art in Florence, Italy. von Benedikt’s passion for art is inseparably connected to faith and family, and explores the physical, spiritual and metaphorical landscapes we place ourselves in through the choices we make. She’s driven by a quest to enjoy the Creation as a whole, as well as mankind’s part in it.
