"Briggs probes with curiosity and intensity those facets of human life that we often seek to close.

Briggs found her subject in the narco-violence that plagues Ciudad Juárez and in an asylum built by a visionary on the outskirts of this Mexican border city. Briggs explored the daily adaptations made by the citizens of the narco-battered borderlands. She rendered them using an amalgam of classic and contemporary imagery and oblique narratives coaxed from European art history. All of Briggs’ work finds a way to link our contemporary anxieties, desires, and expectations with those of the art historical past." Evoke Contemporary

Briggs is listed as a draftsman and an installation sculptor in Who's Who in American Art, earning her BFA at Utah State University in 1977, her MA from the University of Iowa in 1980 and her MFA at the University of Iowa in 1981.
