Painter Bronwen Mayer Henry, Creativity Heals
In the Cope House parlors, August – September 2019Local artist, Bronwen Mayer Henry, stepped into a passionate pursuit of creativity when diagnosed with Thyroid Cancer. It was an unexpected path through a Thyroid Cancer diagnosis and treatment (swallowing a radioactive pill and spending 7 days in isolation) that led her to return to a neglected love for painting. Today her work continues to be a space of deep healing and stepping into more joy. Her macros studies of nature are bold, vivid, and joyful. Through playful color and courageous canvas sizes the ordinary becomes rich, energetic, and healing.The artist lives in Huntingdon Valley, PA with her husband, two children, and King Charles Cavalier Spaniel. You can view her work at www.bronwenmayerhenry.com
