We are pleased to offer a number of paintings by JM Brodrick. Brodrick’s paintings include a wide range of themes from the beauty of old growth forests to the simple beauty of wetlands, fields, people, and city scenes. Her works are described as serene and peaceful but can include both drama and poetic tenderness along with a unique softness and graceful sense of beauty. Her use of colors laid over each other resulting in hues that seem to glow from within. Playing one color off the other in harmony much as a composer would use combinations of notes to form a symphony.

BrodrDSCN0386ick studied painting and classical music in her youth and received her first scholarship at the age of 13. Her grandmother, who was a professional artist from Helsinki Finland, guided her love of the arts. She grew up in a working artist environment. “My Grandmother helped me connect with other artists and shape me at an early age to express myself with painting” says Brodrick. In the 1977 she moved to Fairbanks, Alaska where the rugged lifestyle and freedom of the open country inspired her to further develop her artistic talents.2013-11-19 11.40.59
