Brett Creational is always creating art! She does because she doesn’t know how to exist in this world without making it more beautiful by creating art all around her.
She lives by the motto “You never know what you can accomplish until you try”
She entered the Future Forest art scene in 2017 when she showed up with a giant winged metal bird sculpture that lives at the Nest Stage. She had attended Future Forest every year and that year she wanted to contribute in a special way. Even after buying a ticket she showed up and surprised us with the bird she created out of her love for the festival. Now a resident artist at Future Forest she continues to impress us every year with her dedication, talent and inspiring creativity. Keep your eyes peeled for her new “Ants go marching” Art Installation as your march your way down to the Nest Stage.
