Known as Bry Marie, talented artist Bryanna Marie began calling herself “Painter of Pennies” after she started painting on coins — preferably pennies — a few years back.

“Bryanna was born in Tucson, Arizona and painting quickly became her most sought out passion. As time passed with her self-education, she eventually chose smaller painting surfaces to hone her eye for composition and color,” read the bio on her website; adding that “she pushes the boundaries of her works by focusing on the importance of traditional landscapes while proving that minute things can hold an abundance of wonder and beauty.”

Bryanna had always loved using oil paints on copper, reports say, but she wanted to see if she had the steady hand required to paint tiny details on a very small surface, so she chose the penny. After finishing her first miniature work of art, she felt a sense of accomplishment she had never had with her previous works, so she decided to paint with oils on coins exclusively.

At present, the talented artist continues to show her work around the United States and on the internet through her website. She has also been uploading her works on the photo-sharing app Instagram, where she already got more than 10,ooo followers, as of posting.
