Brecken Bird is an artist currently based in Boise, Idaho. She graduated in May 2016 from Utah State University with a Bachelor's of Fine Art with an emphasis in Drawing and Painting. Being the oldest of five girls she is inspired by women and their unique perspectives along with fairy tales, myths, legends, religion, health, and relationships.

Her work focuses on symbolic imagery and how it can be manipulated to tell stories visually. Using linear markings made with a graphite pencil on paper she creates intricate scenes consisting of a wide range of textures and values. Her work frequently deals with the human figure (primarily the female figure), and all manner of flora and fauna.
