Brittany M. Reid was born and raised on occupied Seneca land (Rochester, NY) where she studied Psychology and Fine Arts at St. John Fisher College and SUNY Brockport. Her earlier work in photography and painting focuses on finding comfort in nature and in close relationships with others. She was deeply influenced by frequent trips to art galleries with her mother as a child and by her interest in astronomy at a young age.

She currently still resides in Rochester, NY where she works primarily in analog collage using source material from the 80's and 90's to create surreal pieces that evoke feelings of nostalgia. Although relatively new to collage, she has been more prolific in this medium than any other. In 2020 alone she produced over 100 pieces and been part of four exhibitions. She also leads the #BlackCollagesMatter movement within Instagram, an ongoing call to collage artists that asks them to create and submit pieces that center Black subjects to increase Black visibility in the collage community. Along with this project, she has collaborated with {th ink} publication to release a special edition #BlackCollagesMatter issue to showcase artists who have participated in the call and donate the proceeds to Black Trans Femmes in the Arts.
