Spotlight on ReSound’s Artists

BrittanyBrittany Dahlen is the daughter of ReSound’s Laura Dahlen. At 16 years of age, Brittany is a budding artist with a bright future ahead of her.

Brittany spent three weeks creating “The Turtle” for the ReSound exhibit. She chose the turtle as her focus because it is her favorite animal. “The message of this piece is that you don’t just have to draw or paint something to make it art,” she says, “you can be more creative and explore your resources.”

TurtleBrittany first discovered her love of art in a sculpture and ceramics class at school, but her artistic talents do not stop here. She has been involved in dance ever since she was three years old and  she loves ballet in particular.

When she graduates High School, Brittany plans to go to the University of Minnesota to become a surgeon.

DonDon Nanthavongsa from Interton CS contributed a picture of a landscape partridge. He was given a color pencil by HR and a 9 x 7 piece of  paper. He finished his piece of art in one day.

Don uses art as an escape into another world. “Art is mainly for relaxing and living in my own fantasy place where the grass is always green, nice weather all year round, surrounded by wild life and nature.”


Don first discovered art during high school and realized it was a great way to express his thoughts. “I’m already a hip-hop artist,” he says, “but art is a hidden talent that I want people to know about me.”

Don has worked for Interton for nine years.  He is the father of two children (a daughter, 15, and a son, 7.) He is a Lao hip/hop artist and travels for concerts at the weekends across the country.
