Brittany Veitch is a Melbourne based felt and soft sculpture artist. In late 2007, Brittany created The Vibrant City to incubate ideas and give a home to an ever-increasing collection of hand-sewn curios. Brittany makes designer hand-sewn toys and soft sculpture, influenced by macabre and kooky humour using handmade felt and vintage fabrics. A self-taught textile enthusiast, Brittany’s interest in working with natural fibres stems from her family’s Alpaca farm. As a trained Industrial Designer (BA Design, Industrial Design, RMIT University, 2007), Brittany is a Toymaker at heart, with a love for all things fabric, the tragically cute and Cribbage.
