Brette Sims is an artist, born in Berkeley and Raised in Oakland, CA. She depicts women with bold & beautiful features. She believes that art is a form of self-love and that art heals depression & anxiety. Under the brand name #artbybrette, she creates artistic reflections of inner love, magic, growth, and presence. The deepest growth happens when you learn how to glow; even in the dark. Her work exists to remind women of color not to be afraid to shine even when your light conflicts with societal norms. Brette depicts the moon and flowers in almost every one of her creations, which represent light in darkness and the ability to grow and stay grounded in the present moment through obstacles. Be your authentic self. Remember your inner love, protect your magic, courageously keep growing and always remember that the only moment that really exists, is NOW. Brette also founded a Nonprofit called: STUK DESIGNS (pronounced "stuck", standing for: Strong, Talented, United, & Knowledgeable). STUK is a community of women who promote self love and creativity to underserved girls of color globally, through arts-driven programming and a clothing brand.
