About Johann DeBry
Address and work:
De Bry was part of a noted family of engravers from Frankfurt. He was one of the most talented and prolific engravers of his time. De Bry’s “Florilegium Novum,” was first published in 1611 and featured 82 engravings of plants and flowers. The plants were identified by their Latin name and each engraving was colored by hand. He was a true master as indicated by the careful composition and confident lines of the engravings. He chose soft delicate hues to color his plates and often highlighted with gold or silver accents.
Her abstracts have an edgy vibe and contain a wide range of color and texture, but are balanced with modern fashionable design. Her paintings bring a dynamic pop of color to wherever they are hung, but the compositions remain livable and accessible.
