Bri Cote joined the Center for Maine Craft team in 2021 as a sales associate. She was born and raised in Maine, and is currently enrolled at the University of Southern Maine with plans to earn a Bachelor of Arts in Psychology. Art has always been something that held a special place in Bri’s heart- not only because it provided her with a form of creative expression throughout childhood, but because of the interpersonal connection it fosters. Being able to elicit emotion and critical thinking through a piece made by your own two hands is something that fascinates Bri. Hiking and thrifting are two things that she is very passionate about and enjoys doing in her free time. Bri is very grateful to be a part of the Shop Maine Craft staff and is excited to meet and learn from the Maine art community.
