About


Brittany Hanks is an award winning Fine Artist and Illustrator living in Chicago, Illinois. 
Her paintings, apparel, accessories and designs adorn the walls and bodies of people across the world. Inspired by the female form, the intricacies of the human face,  nature, color and sting and beauty of life, her work evokes an air of the traditional while maintaining it's modernity. She likes to think of the pieces she creates as a frozen moment in time- a lingering focus on a face while the world zooms by in a blur of color. 
After graduating in 2009, Brittany became a Freelance apparel designer, Commercial, and Fine Artist. Since then, she has become an internationally showing working artist, as well as running her own apparel brand, Pajamasquid. 
b. 1987
