"Paintings preserve the ephemeral. I am drawn to emulate nature's inspiration via color, depth, and motion through the unplanned interaction of many simple things." MBP
Melissa Bronwen Pyle’s paintings are tactile explorations of nature where spontaneity of technique translates into subjects that breath and grow. Pyle “weaves” with the paint layers of color that inherently change with the light giving breath to the way the suggested organic elements relate.
