Brit Reed (Choctaw) cites her creativity starting from an early age with music and dance. During high school she became a freelance photographer shooting for Adore Vintage and local bands around North Texas. She studied film and photography at Columbia College Chicago, before moving to Olympia, WA in 2010 to attend The Evergreen State College where she eared her BA and MPA with a concentration in Tribal Governance. She focused her studies on tribal food (in)security, food sovereignty, tribal food policy, and the effects of food on the health of our tribal communities - later continuing these explorations at the Seattle Culinary Academy. In 2011 she began her love and obsession with beadwork that continues to this day. Her beadwork style features designs that tie deeply to Choctaw, Lakota, and Coast Salish tribal nations. Increasingly, her beadwork features colorful pallets and showcases cultural scenes from her life.
