Biography:

J .M. Brodrick 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 in 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.

By the age of 18 it was clear to her that she needed to devote all of her talents to painting. In 1977 she moved to Fairbanks Alaska where the rugged lifestyle and freedom of the open country inspired her to further develop her artistic talents. Brodrick now lives in Oregon and is surrounded by the beauty of the Pacific Northwest.

Brodrick's paintings are in numerous corporate collections in the United States and Europe including: Atlantic Richfield Corporation, the embassy of the Russian Federation in Washington D.C., and the State of Alaska with a twenty- six foot painting at the Fairbanks International Airport.
