About the Artist

American-Canadian artist Briana Lyon is a trained art historian and Eco-designer. Born and raised in greater Los Angeles, she now divides her time between studios in California and British Columbia.

For the first 10 years of her part-time fine art career she lovingly devoted her practice to expressive painting. Landscapes, figures, abstract expressions, Chinese Literati painting style and concepts of environmental stress or destruction are all heavily present in these works.

Today she is hybridizing her use of art media with her careers in ecodesign and art research by working with photography, digital photo editing, land art and story telling. She dabbles in archival paint making and restoration.

Her Alma maters include Art Center College of Design, Dodge School of Film and Media Arts, The University of British Columbia, Banff Center for the Arts and Verge Permaculture Design institute. She started exhibiting in the United States in Pomona, California in 2005 and Vancouver, BC Canada in 2007. Today, she teaches courses and designs environments in both regions while making art in her spare time.
