Work With Me...

"Hi, I'm Brette! I'm an Oakland raised artist who went to a little all girls high school and inevitably became a feminist. I have two brands! #ARTBYBRETTE, is my personal brand about inner love, truth, growth & presence. It's all about living in the moment. Because what else is there really? There is so much magic in living in the present moment! ​STUK DESIGNS (pronounced "stuck") is my feminist art organization and nonprofit brand. I design t-shirts and art merch for STUK! Through STUK I also teach girls in underserved communities in the U.S. and abroad (Kumasi, Ghana) self-love through art!"

"I believe I'm a unique as an illustrator, because I'm classically trained. I have mastered many artistic styles. I received my best art instruction when I went to Holy Names high school in Oakland, CA. There, I began building my first body of work, within the Honors Art Program. I received the highest score in the National Honors Program. I had my first art show when I was 17 & almost sold the entire collection! I continued my art education at Loyola Marymount University. There, I studied Graphic Design. I had to break away from my classical training to develop my own personal style as an artist. I look at that part of my journey as having to breakdown to build up. I relate my life to the moon cycles. I am drawn to illumination in darkness. The deepest growth happens when you learn how to glow in the dark. I depict flowers and the moon as symbols of growth. I feel like every every human being, (just like the moon and flowers) needs a heavy dose of both light and darkness to find beauty and bliss. I had to look deep into my own darkness, depression, anxiety and heartbreaks, to sustain a feeling of lightness, so that I could teach others. I now have a unique style of combining the digital arts & fine arts (art by hand). Let's work together & make what's in your head come to life!"

“Brette took my idea and gave it life. I can not draw. I can not paint. I can not do anything artistic that involves pencils or water colors and blank papers. But, Brette managed to pull out of herself what I would do if I could do those things. She became the vessel. What came of the logo she created for me was far and beyond what I had expected and not only defined my musical sound, but my message and unexpectedly, our purpose. By working with Brette, you are really working with an extension of yourself.”

“Working with Brette was amazing because she was able to easily comprehend my vision and she gave me exactly what I was looking for. The artwork she did for me was not only dope, but she had an amazing turnaround time!”
