Briana Jamieson is an artist, writer and publisher, living and working in Te Whanganui-a-Tara Wellington. She moves between oil painting and poetry; the two forms influencing each other and flowing together, to create series of works that capture the essence of a feeling in time.
Briana holds a Bachelor of Fine Arts with First Class Honours from Massey University, 2015; and a Certificate in Te Pou Hono ki Taiao from Te Whare Wānanga o Awanuiārangi, 2021. Alongside her painting practice Briana runs Mineral, a publishing project with a focus on the poetic.
