Featured Artist – Brett Mason

Brett MasonI am a creator,thinker,father, and seeker of the unknown.  I draw,paint,doodle,humor,strum…I go where inspiration leads while trying to remain grounded to the positive and energizing. This has lead me meandering the beaches of California to the Outer banks of North Carolina selling works of art,on stage in New York’s east village singing songs, and by other means of energy, into the Boston Marathon. I try to set a good example and inspire everyone to do what they love.

I attended Clarion University as an art major with a concentration in oil painting. Following after was a period of pursuing other passions until I discovered watercolors years later. I started working on the spot which opened up a huge door for me in terms of inspiration and therefore productivity. I let my subconscious guide so much of what I do. So often I start something with enough vigor, that I barely get paint on my palette before work begins. The best things always seem to happen when there’s that kind of connection. When the focus is right I aim for something more detailed. Other times I let things happen on their own and try to stop at that sweet spot of almost desperate minimalism. I live in Pittsburgh with my wife, our three boys, and Buzz, our dog.
