Artist of the Month – Britt Bjoro

Each month we will be hosting an exhibition by different artists showcasing a range of different styles and approaches. We would love to invite you to come and experience their works by local Christian artists.

Britt is a self-taught artist, painting mainly with acrylics and mixed media. Inspired by the beauty in creation around us, her desire is to bring joy by using bright and vibrant colours. Born and raised in Norway, Britt moved to Reading in 1996 with her family. From very early on, she has had a passion to use different art forms to reach out to people in the community. In 2003, with her friend Karen, she set up Arty Giraffe, an organisation serving as a hub for various art projects including: a women’s art & craft community group, which ran for 10 years; a website selling local Christian art, and a coffee shop. As well as having a passion for painting and encouraging others to be creative, Britt also works as a Norwegian sign language interpreter travelling globally.
