A love of nature and concern for wildlife are the driving forces behind Lyse Anthony’s art career. Most of her works emerge from experiences during field trips, when she feels inspired to preserve and share a compelling moment.

Fascinated by the fluid properties of watercolors, Anthony has developed an artistic style that melds superb technical skills and rhythmic composition with a keen eye for value and color contrasts.
