In this episode, Alicia chats with Dallas-based artist Bree Smith to dive into her background, career, and all of the steps she took to organize her own solo show in 2020. 

Bree Smith is a Dallas-based painter and mixed media artist and has also recently begun working in murals and installation. Bree received her Bachelor of Fine Art from the University of Mary Hardin-Baylor in 2007. Her current body of work focuses on futuristic themes inspired by her late father’s love of science fiction, and often includes colorful astronauts set among imaginary and dreamlike space worlds. Bree pulls from her experience as a graphic and software experience designer to reconcile her need for control and perfection through the wild and fluid attributes of paint. She has been featured in several online and print publications including Dallas Style & Design Magazine, Voyage Dallas, PIKCHUR Magazine, and ArtFolio Annual.
