Editor’s Note: We are featuring Bree Wristers, otherwise known as BREE the Mural Girl, talented artist and Cypress resident, in this edition of PinPointe Magazines - Cypress. How did your love of art come about? Painting has been my passion since my early years; I’ve been painting since I was 5 years old. We moved a lot when I was a child. My parents let me paint my room however I wanted. I started painting murals on the walls then. What formal training have you had? My formal training included high school and college classes and workshops for the past 18 years. Where did you go to college? I received my undergraduate degree, a BS in Pre-Occupational Therapy, from Baylor University, and my Master’s degree in teaching from studies at the University of Texas at Arlington, combined with studies at La Universidad Complutense de Madrid. While in college, I continued to paint art pieces and sell them in small venues, cafes, and boutiques.

What career path did you take next? I moved to Spain for four years, teaching, while studying the language and the arts. Upon returning from Spain in 2004, I taught Spanish and Art and continued to sell my art and paint murals for clients. How did you get started as Bree the Mural Girl? Over time, my interests gravitated toward teaching others how to paint, as well as continuing to paint murals on large scales. Now, 12 years later, I continue to work as a full-time muralist for my company, BREE the Mural Girl LLC. In 2016, I opened my first art studio, BRUSH. BRUSH offers painting classes to all ages with a specific emphasis on art therapy for children with special needs.
