CX STITCH PRIZES! TWO paintings from Berly Brown! What a treat!

The CX STITCH prize pool continues to expand with two original paintings from Berly Brown. You'll be very lucky to take one of these home. Berly's career is taking off and getting one her works will just get harder.

Berly Brown received her Bachelor of Fine Arts in Studio Art and Painting from the University of Nebraska-Lincoln in May 2011.  She has been commuting by bicycle since 2005 and in 2006 had the opportunity to take a month-long self-supported cycling tour through the Pacific Northwest with the aid of the Undergraduate Creative Activities and Research Grant (UCARE) through UNL.  That tour led to another in 2008 from Lincoln, Nebraska through Colorado and down to Santa Fe, New Mexico.   She is an active member of Sheclismo and has recently fallen in love with cyclocross and related debauchery. Her work is heavily influenced by cycling, camping, and the relationships between people and their environments. She likes to work with thick painterly textures and exaggerated color schemes. She hopes to attend graduate school for painting in the near future.

Here are a few samples of her work:
