Artist Statement: Brennan strives to add as much fun and cheer into her work as possible with her drawings, colours, texture and unexpected details like a banana shaped handle. Anything goes for subject matter, the only requirement is that it is fun and will make someone smile when they use it. Brennan takes an idea like pineapples as a theme and challenges herself to use it in a variety of different ways; foam cutouts rolled into the slab, drawn into the slab, more appliqué style added on top, a pineapple shaped knob and finally sgraffito pineapples drawn into the slip.
