Riley Burrus

Riley Burrus is an Illustration student living in Minneapolis, Minnesota, and is currently enrolled as Junior at the Minneapolis College of Art and Design. She is a native Texan, but has lived in the Pacific Northwest, Southern California, and is currently residing in the MidWest. Her work is highly detailed and focuses on finding the goodness in activities we do everyday. She is inspired by folk and naïve art made popular by regionalist artists in the 1930's, such as Thomas Hart Benton and Grant Wood. Her work utilizes pattern and texture to give the pieces a handmade, whimsical quality. When not illustrating in her studio blaring folk music, Riley can be found in her kitchen trying out a new recipe or exploring Minneapolis.
