About the Artist

My whole life I’ve been an avante garde painter. Then I discovered plants. I became obsessed with finding ways to document and create with plants. To use them creatively in art and design. To heal people and planet.

I believe that designing ecologies is an imperative art form. That well blended groupings of plants have the power to repair our environment. That such plants can be presented in a way that is both exceptionally beautiful and inspiring.

I collect and document plants and wildflowers. I design private habitats. I grow, study and propagate rare edible plants species in both Los Angeles, California and rural British Columbia, Canada. I do experimental land art projects and forest installations and make my own organic paints using ancient recipes. And, most importantly, I visualize a better future.

Briana Lyon has studied at Art Center College of Design, Dodge School of Film and Media Arts at Chapman University, The University of British Columbia and Verge Permaculture Design Institute. She’s worked on Olympic art projects (Ice Gate 2010) and completed artist’s residencies at prestigious institutions like the Banff Center. She also consults as an art expert. Her artwork has been exhibited in and is in private collections across North America.
