Born in London Ontario, Bryan Jesney was raised by his father on an old WWII Air force training base north of the city called Huron Park. The home he shared with his older brother Brent and father was less then modest and situated in the middle of nowhere, which meant privacy was extraordinary. Growing up, although loved deeply by his late father Les, Bryan was often exposed to unhealthy environments.
It was likely this, that drove Bryan at a very young age, to seek into the journey of fine art. At 18 he followed his passion and left the small town of Huron Park, to live with his older brother Brent in London where he was able to attend HB Beal Arts. After graduating Bryan spent a year in San Francisco, filling sketch books full of rampant ideas that can be seen in some of his paintings today. After returning, Bryan attended the Fine Arts Program at OCAD in Toronto.
Bryan continues to paint daily in his home studio in London Ontario, surrounded by love and support from this wife Rebecca and his dogs Henry and Nevah.
