Brisco is known for her pastel but vibrant color palettes and use of mixed media. She is a long-time art instructor at Pleasant Grove High School, where she has received numerous awards for her contributions to education.

Thematic elements of her work can be described as exemplifying life and death, free thought, balance, chaos, and beginnings and ends.  Her most recent work garnered the attention of the National Art Education Association who named Brisco the 2018 National Secondary Art Educator.
