ARTISTS
Bryttany Mack
Bryttany, unlike most artists, wasn't always interested in pursuing art, let alone painting from a small age. Her story is a bit more unique. She always had the innate ability to see, but as fate would have it her body was forced to catch up when she was inadvertently placed into an art class. From there, her love affair with art began and with time her passion for painting came.

Being a native to Atlanta, it seemed God had everything divinely ordained that she go to SCAD Atlanta. Speaking through those around her, allowing her to fall in love with the campus during the tour. Post SCAD, she self taught herself to not only brand herself as a painter, but the essence a true artist. She expanded her repertoire to photography, 3D modeling, and illustration; God blessed her with the ability to expand her territory of expression.

Within her art career, she has been a part of three art shows (Black Girl Art Show, Conception Art Show, and a nonprofit art show for Feed Thee. She entered contests and completed personal projects for customers helping their visions come to life.

Bryttany Mack is available for private bookings

Available M, T, TH & F (any time), most Saturdays from 10am until 4pm, most Sundays after 1pm, and until 4pm on Wednesdays

Private tutoring, weddings, portraits, and events.

Jessica Lily
Jessica Lily has been working professionally in the arts for over 20 years. She was formerly a photographer and is currently a graphic designer and illustrator, working for clients nationally. She returned to watercolor as a medium in 2021 following a deep love for water based media in her youth and college career, where she studied Fine Arts at the University of Georgia.

Her body of watercolor illustrations are colorful, playful and inviting - she loves to paint animals that come to life deep with soul, and portraits that capture the essence of a person. She has a deep enjoyment of studying art, talking shop about art materials and process, and believes that every teacher is a student, and every student is a teacher.

Jessica Lily is available for private bookings

Available some weekends, check date before booking.
Available for art parties, small groups, portfolio review, and private lessons.

Title or Location: The photo which is referenced in this watercolor was taken at Aoraki/ Mt Cook National Park by Kavan Chay which made the cut for the 2024 Milky Way Photographer of the Year international competition.
I have always loved watching the milky way, its the brightest out at sea. I have never been able to capture it with a camera. I had this idea in my head about painting a red house on a lonely hill with the milky way above it showing how small we are compared to the universe. Then I came across this shot taken out at Aoraki/ Mt Cook National Park by Kavan Chay and it was like the universe had heard me and given me a reference photo. the watercolor looks nothing like the original photo but I love
