ABOUT BREE

Education:
Brigham Young University - Hawaii
Bachelor of Arts in Graphic Design, 2016

Born and raised in Southern California, it was at a young age in which Bree Poort cultivated her love for the ocean, surfing, and art. Family nights were often spent beachside by the campfire after a full day of surf and sun. Many days were also spent along her mother's side watching her mother paint and give Bree tips and techniques in creating art. Bree comes from a loving home & family that encouraged her to be hard-working, creative, and kind.

When the time came, Bree made her way across the Pacific to join the art program at Brigham Young University of Hawaii (BYU-H). Having graduated in Graphic Design, this provided her the opportunity to see and understand myriads of forms of art and design. Inspired by the shoreline of beautiful North Shore, Oahu, Bree began painting with resin in her second to last semester of college.

Resin has allowed Bree to illustrate her mind's vision of an above-Earth perspective of the ocean. The depth created with layers of liquid-like flowing colors and strokes have become instrumental in establishing her original style. This abstract yet familiar asthetic Bree creates is sought after and acclaimed all around the globe.

  • Since 2016, Bree has created more than 700 pieces exhibited in galleries, cafes, and placed in homes internationally
  • Since 2015, Bree has been able to play with, glass, paint about 10 surfboards. Ranging on work with Travis Reynolds, Matty Raynor, Carson Myers, Bobby (her husband) and more.
