Brittany Harris is an eclectic creator with a wide-range of interests and talents ranging from art to social justice. As a visual artist, she creates art with bold colors, abstract shapes, and charismatic characters that represent different aspects of the Black Diaspora. Her art also goes beyond the canvas and to the screen, having recently being recognized at the 2018 New York University Bobst Film Festival for her film, Hidden Gem: South Africa, a short documentary examining the social and financial impact of the arts in South Africa.
As a social justice advocate, Brittany has worked within an international non-profit where she supported advocacy programs designed to end poverty and further justice reform. She also works at a digital service organization teaching people to tell their own experiences through social media and crafts curriculum to support educators in how to best serve their students.
After being diagnosed with endometriosis and uterine fibroids, Brittany founded RootedSol, a company dedicated to changing how women manage their menstrual pain. Through RootedSol, Brittany hopes to educate, inform, and empower women to take control of their reproductive wellness.
Brittany holds her Masters of Arts in Educational Leadership, Politics, and Advocacy from New York University, a B.S. in Organizational Leadership from Colorado State University, and an A.A. in Apparel Management from the Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising. Her vast experience, passions and knowledge inspire her to find new ways to create and connect.
Brittany’s ultimate goal through her art and entrepreneur is to give voice to important societal issues and inspire others to use their gifts to change the world.
