JEAN BRADBURY, a Seattle based painter, explores her love of nature with large scale acrylic and metallic leaf works that depict plants and animals in whimsical landscapes. Her use of metallic leaf allows her to capture the changing light of day so that her artworks reflect light in even the darkest spaces. Bradbury has a BFA from Queen’s University and grew up on an organic farm in rural New Brunswick. She currently works with the United Nations teaching farm women in the country of Jordan about natural dyes and textile design. She is the founder of Studio Syria which brings art classes to Syrians living as refugees in Jordan.
Her large scale public art pieces are found in collections around the world including Starbucks in China and Kuwait, as well as schools and hospitals in the Western United States and Maritime Canada.
