Brigitte is the "quirkiest" of the group and is a very protective mother to her twins. Like Blacky, she was raised by humans, but, in contrast to Blacky, she has not shown any interest in the painting implements, which is interesting. It disproves the thesis that a deepened interest in dealing with paint and surfaces only develops on the basis of human socialization. Nonetheless, she is often present in the sessions. The only actions Brigitte carried out with the brush were a wiping of the floor with the dry brush, and once she rubbed her arm with the white paint, as if it were sunscreen cream or body lotion.

From Brigitte, we have 2 color strokes on a paper.

She made her first brushstroke on 5 December 2014.
