Behind the Scenes: Artist Bronwyn Haymes | Baltimore Art Photography

It should come as no surprise that I love capturing details, including behind the scenes of how things are made and created. I met Baltimore artist Bronwyn Haymes several years ago through volunteering at the Creative Alliance where she works the box office and we instantly hit it off. She’s had multiple shows around town, at the CA and elsewhere, showcasing her phenomenal talents combining paint and threadwork on her canvases and I knew I wanted to capture her at work. Last March we met for a morning in her studio at The Creative Labs down along the Jones Falls, a space filled with various artists, art installations, and events. Bronwyn is incredibly candid on Instagram about her journey with alopecia, an autoimmune disease resulting in hair loss, and during this visit she was beginning to find out what that meant for her and was working on a piece that spoke to the relationship with hair. The second piece she worked on that day was taller than her and she was adding the thread details, giving it texture. I had so much fun hanging out with Bronwyn and climbing around her studio to capture these images!
