Atlanta native Britt Bass Turner is an abstract artist known for her playful and colorful paintings. She fell in love with color and design at a young age—by way of her interior designer mother—through immersing herself in fabric samples and color swatches. Britt is constantly refining her eye for aesthetics and design, and hopes to bring this sense of exploration and curiosity to her current work.
Britt received a BFA in art education with an emphasis on painting from the Lamar Dodd School of Art at the University of Georgia in 2011. She wanted to “just paint” and live off part-time jobs for a couple years before diving into teaching, but to her greatest surprise and joy, her side job of painting quickly turned into a “grown up” career. Five years after graduating, Britt is still going strong, making paintings and installations fulltime in her Roswell, Georgia studio. She also calls the quiet, Southern town her home, which she shares with her husband, Render Turner, and their Boykin Spaniel, Birdie.

WEBSITE: Red Lettered Goods
Hey y’all! Megan here. Owner, creator and the Red behind Red Lettered Goods. I’m a Texas gal adopted into the Midwest with a big ole Texas sized passion to spread as much light and love into the world as this redheaded gal can through my lettering.
With creativity running in my family (architect dad who STILL hand illustrates birthday and mother’s day cards) and surrounding myself friends who share a mutual love for crafts and doodling, you can say that having a hand lettering business was always part of the plan for me.
Fast forward a few years (insert meet the husband, the big move to a new city, the going from a family of two to three) - established in 2016, Red Lettered Goods was born. It is my mission to create hand lettered products that encourage, inspire, make you laugh, invoke community and celebrate all of the big and small moments life gives us. I live for the small moments y’all. Mother Teresa said it best - “In life we cannot always do great things, but we can do small things with great love.” The small acts of kindness we commit go from one person to the next and then spread like wildfire to bring big love that draws us together in community. Isn’t that just what our world needs?
All Red Lettered Goods products are created as an original hand lettered design and printed locally in St. Louis, MO.
