Bri Hermanson is a scratchboard illustrator. Born 100 years to the day after the birth of Rockwell Kent, Bri grew up in a small town in Oklahoma where she began to experiment with scratchboard. In 2005, she moved to NYC, where she received her Master's in Illustration from FIT in 2007. During this time, she developed a love for drippy, messy ink while continuing to separately explore scratchboard. After graduate school, the inevitable merging of ink and scratchboard took place, combining the two facets of her illustrative sensibility as well as two markedly visceral mediums. She continues to explore both methods of working with scratchboard and loves solving problems.
Bri now lives and works in Northampton, MA.
