Maria Britton lives and works in Carrboro, NC. Britton’s works incorporate painting, sewing, and relief sculpture in her continued explorations of notions of femininity and feminism, high and low forms of art making, and dreams and disasters. Her circuitous route as a painter, compelled to work primarily with used, mostly floral, patterned bed sheets, has led her to more sculptural concerns of bending the grid. She has participated in artist residencies at Byrdcliffe Art Colony, Vermont Studio Center, and the Petrified Forest National Park. Britton earned her BFA from Winthrop University in Rock Hill, SC and her MFA from UNC in Chapel Hill, NC. She has worked as an arts educator in traditional and alternative settings including hospitals. Britton is Co-Director of LOG, an experimental art gallery rooted in Chapel Hill, NC.
