Briony Morrow-Cribbs was born in 1982 in Berkley, California. Briony’s early interest in art was nurtured by growing up on Whidbey Island, WA in a large family of artists. In 2005, Briony graduated from the Emily Carr institute of Art in Design in Vancover, BC with a BFA. Following a brief move back to Whidbey, Briony decided to move to Brattleboro, Vermont to open an etching studio. Twin Vixen Press, now in its 5th year of operation, provides classes and rental space to print artists in the Southern Vermont Area. In 2009 Briony worked with author Amy Stewart and Algonquin Books to illustrate New York Times bestseller, “Wicked Plants: The Weed that Killed Lincoln’s Mother & Other Botanical Atrocities.” The second book in the series, “Wicked Bugs: The Louse That Conquered Napoleon’s Army & Other Diabolical Insects” was published in the Spring 2011. Briony’s most recent book, "Unnatural Creatures" was published this last summer. Edited by Neil Gaiman and published by Harper Collins, the book is a collection of short stories about monsters for children.
In 2009 Briony moved to Madison-Wisconsin to pursue her MFA at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. She graduated in the spring of 2012 and currently teaches printmaking at the University of Wisconsin-Madison.
