Philippine artists mourns to the death of Bree Jonson

 It is a sad day today in the local art scene. Local artists in the country are mourning to the sudden death of the 30-year-old painter Bree Jonson, who was found lifeless in a hotel room in La Union. Her companion is the son of billionaire businessman Roberto Ongpin, who was later taken into police custody for drug possession.

Ongpin will be charged with illegal possession of drugs, the Philippine Daily Inquirer quoted Maj. Gerardo Macaraeg, as saying. Macaraeg said cocaine was found in the room.

Bree is one of the best painters in the country with some of her creations was seen in other parts of the world. Some of her true-to-life large paintings are packed with animals. The style is realistic, almost classic, with powerful focus on minute details like pelts and antlers that the animals almost leap out of the canvas. 

Here are some of Johnson's art works:
