K. L. Britton’s art defines the connection and intimacy between artist and subject. Britton’s work explores the depth of the person they represent, capturing in paint an expression of a sitter no photograph can replicate. At the young age of twenty eight Britton has become a premier portrait artist in an extremely short amount of time. Britton’s art is currently housed in private and corporate collections around the world, including the U.S., Canada, and U.K.
