About the Artist

Bria Swafford is a contemporary painter based out of Houston, Texas. Her style is constantly evolving as she experiments with combining minimalist shapes and illustrations with realism. 

Bria is a recent graduate of the University of Houston, with a degree in Corporate Communication and Business. After a lifetime of painting for leisure, she gave up her hobby to focus on pursuing a career in digital media and communication. A few years before graduating, she began designing graduation caps for friends and classmates and within a few months, her work had been featured by Essence Magazine, and shared across every major social network. Within a year, her grad cap work as well as her other artwork had been featured by Good Morning America, Seventeen Magazine, regularly on popular urban blogs such as The Shade Room and Baller Alert, and even mentioned, commented on or shared by celebrities like Nicki Minaj, Angela Bassett, Missy Elliot and others.

These small achievements inspired Bria to become reacquainted with her passion for painting and bring her ideas to life. She is now expanding her product selection and determined to make her mark on the art world with pieces that reflect her interests and personality in the most imaginative of ways.
