About Bryony Reed
Bryony is a full time professional Artist, based in London and North Norfolk where she is Studio Manager and Tutor at the Norfolk Painting School (The UK’s leading specialists in oil painting).
Bryony explains “Raised and educated in North Norfolk, I have always been surrounded by beauty, which inspired my passion for painting from a very early age. I could paint before I could write. I have painted throughout education, successes and failures, and it has always served a deep rooted purpose of release. A “hobby”, a “craft”, a “bit of fun” – well known phrases for art as a child; something to grow out of, not grow with. In my early 20’s, I made the decision to end my career in Psychiatric Nursing, to become an Artist. Going against the grain, I am determined to make Art my career, to pursue something I love and live for.”
Bryony is a big advocate for keeping Art as a subject in main stream education, as she believes Art is just as important for children’s development as Maths or English. She feels it’s so important to encourage children and young adults to see creative jobs as an option, and that it is possible to make your dream job a reality!
Bryony is now beginning to explore different subject matters, but continuing the theme by focusing on the beauty of life and how that can sometimes have an ugly appearance. Watch this space for new paintings …
