Artist Statement

"?Inspired by what I was learning about Colony Collapse Disorder, I started painting bees in 2008. Essential to the cultivation and propagation of so many of our foods bees felt like our contemporary canary in the coal mine. ?Bees are dying! Something IS wrong with the system!? my conscience alarmed. Eight years later the planet continues to alarm. The health of our environment, of our planet and its inhabitants is the issue of our time. With their collaborative social structure, pollination work?endlessly supporting the propagation of new life and nourishment, as well as, producing the perfect, naturally preserved, sweet food, bees are iconic beacons to call us to responsible action.? ? Britt" - Britt Freda

Since 2011 Britt has focused her painting on endangered species. Her work was included in the 2013-2015 Environmental Impact U.S. museum tour and is part of the National Museum of Wildlife Art?s permanent collection. Britt?s work is exhibited at galleries across the country. From a small farm on an island in the Pacific Northwest, with her family by her side, Britt searches the horizon looking toward future generations.
