Artist of the Month
The walls of Burlap and Bean are currently
featuring the work of Brette Husar.
Brette Husar found her passion for photography as a young teenager in Southern California. From her first middle school photography class she knew she wanted to preserve the wonders she found in everyday life and she began keeping her camera close at hand.
She finds beauty from the textures and colors of a pineapple on the kitchen counter to the awe inspiring endless vistas of exotic places like Mount Kilimanjaro and majesty of the Andean peaks that nestle Machu Picchu. She always seeks brightly colored subjects and experiments with unusual angles, contrasts and different perspectives. The fearlessness in her images is the product of constant experimentation and stretching the boundary of her digital camera. Brette rarely uses photo-editing software, but when she does, it’s usually for black and white conversions. She was taught to “get it right in the camera” instead of relying on post editing.
She has recently kicked her photography habit into high gear. In April 2013, she was featured on Flickr’s Explore (see “Crocus” on display); her first show in October 2013 quickly resulted in three bookings for 2014; The Main Line Times.com published her first foray into photojournalism in November; and her photo-arsenal was upgraded with the addition of a full frame DSLR.
