Byerly is a forty-six-year-old artist who lives with a developmental disability. She grew up in Valley Forge, Pennsylvania and has attended the Center for Creative Works in Wynnewood for over four years. She feels that art is very important and it’s great to make. Byerly’s work revolves around a clear and focused mark-making technique. Using thin pens and markers, she creates a network of dots, lines, or shapes that populate her compositions in high density.
