Brigita Huemer was born in Austria in 1972 and currently lives and works in Rome. As a child she developed a special interest in art and photography. In 1999 she worked as an assistant for Walter Schupfer's photography agency and later became studio manager for photographer Todd Eberle. Her training started at The Art Students League in New York and continued with a diploma from the Department of Fine Arts from the School of Visual Arts.

Initially she was drawn to a naturalistic photographic technique, and then she continued with artistic experimentation, first on the human figure with cutout portraits and then on the abstraction of forms. 

She participated in various collective exhibitions including Das Ei, a project organized in 2013 for the Flashback fair in Turin. In 2017 she exhibited at the Ricordi Futuri 2.0 exhibition at Polo del '900 in Turin and Il Segno della Memoria at the European Parliament in Brussels. In the same year she held two solo exhibitions, one at El Magazen dell’Arte in Venice and the other at the Galleria Ferrero Arte Contemporanea in Ivrea.

The works of Brigita Huemer have their signature style in the repetition of modular geometrical shapes, programmatically established by the rhythmic passage from monochrome. They are never a monotonous and mechanical repetition of themselves because each of these variations, in a cause and effect relationship, generates a total shift of all the internal equilibriums of the pictorial composition.

In 2018 she participated in the exhibitions: Ricordi futuri 4.0 - Cosa c'è in fondo al binario at the Milan Holocaust Memorial and Unforgettable Childhood, both curated by Ermanno Tedeschi. In May 2018 the duo exhibition Emotiva, Brigita Huemer e Angelica Romeo curated by Cesare Biasini Selvaggi was held at the Mucciaccia Contemporary gallery in Rome.
