Welcome to The Thirsty Painters!
My name is Bree. I currently reside in Boonville, New York. I attended Cazenovia College and received a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree with a minor in Art History. I have always dreamed of living in a big city, so before I graduated I spent the summer in NYC where I did an internship at Exit Art, a nonprofit art gallery located in Chelsea. It was a great experience but I realized I was a country girl at heart, so I moved home. After graduating, I took a year off in order to decide what I should and wanted to do with my art degree. I came to the realization that I would like to teach. I enrolled in SUNY Oswego Art Education program where I earned a Masters degree in Art Education. I am k-12 certified in art. I've done several short and long term sub positions in school and also taught two years at a local k-6 Catholic school.
In the summer of 2013, my best friend from Cazenovia college, a fellow artist and I decided to take a Thelma and Louise adventure. A traveling adventure which I can say was not the first and certainly not the last traveling experience in my life but probably one of my favorites. I have also traveled to Ireland and Italy which both come pretty close. I have actually seen the works of many of my favorite artist first hand! Amazing doesn't come close to describing those experiences.
