Meghan Byrne Bio
Sydney based artist Meghan Byrne graduated with a degree in design from COFA, UNSW in 2006. Meghan majored in textile design before working professionally and experimenting extensively with screen-print design. Due to this influence, her artwork often carries elements of repetition and pattern. Meghan has used a variety of mixed media including acrylics and oils in order to bring transparency and realism to her work, but more recently she has enjoyed working with graphite and gouache on paper.
"My pre-occupation with botanical art is the consumption of its beauty. I am forever struck by the stark reality that although the petal is fragile and the flower wilts in the vase, the power of nature is beyond us. It struggles to survive but it consumes us in the end." - Meghan Byrne
