Darcy Briks was born in Milford, CT and grew up in various suburbs throughout the country before settling down in Fairfield, CT for the remainder of her formative years. This set the tone for her desire and ability to explore various styles and mediums throughout her career. She later studied art and graphic design in a post-graduate program at Massachusetts College of Art and Design in Boston, then continued to explore different artistic mediums, including photography, acrylic painting and mixed media, throughout her twenties. Now, she mainly creates abstract acrylic paintings with a focus on color combinations and enjoys experimenting with new painting styles in each new series. Her latest series, Hutt Lagoon Pink Lake, features warm and emerald colors inspired by the aerial landscape views of a natural wonder on Western Australia’s coast. Her other new series, Stones and Gems, explores monochromatic malachite, amethyst, and other precious stones’ natural shapes and patterns.
She recently relocated from Greenpoint Brooklyn, where she had lived for nearly seven years, to Ardsley, New York in Westchester. Her primary role, professionally, is Founder and Creative Director of a boutique creative agency where she works on branding, print and web design projects.
