Courtney Brims
BIO

Courtney Brims grew up in the outskirts of Brisbane collecting dead beetles, dressing up as Ursula from "The Little Mermaid" and drawing pink unicorns and prehistoric birds. She graduated with a degree in interior design from QUT before becoming a fulltime artist and illustrator in 2008. Her pencil drawings depict a sweet and sour wonderland of stray creatures and lost girls, exploring a mishmash world of reality and make believe. Courtney had her first solo exhibition at Sydney's Monster Children Gallery in 2008 as winner of the Mooks Artspace competition. Since then she has had solo shows at LA's Black Maria Gallery and most recently at Brisbane's Nine Lives Gallery as well as numerous group shows across Australia.

ARTIST STATEMENT

When people view my drawings I like to think I fill them with a sense of curiosity and a feeling of nostalgia. Drawing is my way of storytelling where I can take the viewer off the winding path and into the deep woods reminiscent of a fairytale. I primarily focus on themes of displacement, abandonment and loss of self - telling tales of neglected creatures trying to find their place in the world.
