My World: Brianna Lance

Brianna Lance is creative director, painter, musician, DJ & editor, in short an all-round talent who inspires us regularly with her fresh spirit on Instagram. Today she gives us an insight into her world

Let’s say there are three things that make my heart beat when I scroll through Instagram Stories. One of them is for sure when Brianna Lance shares her yoga routine with a personal explanation in a very approachable, totally non-annoyingly way too UBER Zen and everything. But that is not even her whole story: She paints with watercolors and perfectly manages to document this special skill in such a digestible way as well, that I basically find everything she does highly inspiring OR entertaining. She describes herself as a “creative director, painter, musician, dj and editor. I essentially just make things for a living“. It was about time that we feature this one of a kind personality that feels so close yet she is so far away in New York, every other day:
