British born artist Bryony Wynne-Jones is influenced by the great tradition of botanical art in the UK.Bryony paints what she loves and she also loves to paint and to impart that joy to her students. Her statement could be simply to say that she adores nature and all of its miraculous detail, form function, and variety. The fact that it is always accessible and perfect in its way. She enjoys the challenge to represent it in many different applications with watercolor, pen and ink, and pencil.
The choices of portraying nature in different ways is vast. Dare to evolve and when in doubt do. She does not limit her style and knows that some subjects lend themselves to a different interpretation. all-in-all let it flow. Never block the excitement by worrying about anyone else’s opinion. Art is personal; let Your person shine through.
