hi, i'm pen brady

One of the hardest things for me to do is talk about myself. So I'll start with some of the things I like:


I love the rain, being snowed in, cats, campfires, sleeping in a sleeping bag, taking care of those I love, getting up before the sun to work on my art, and the feeling of working and reworking a section of a painting, over and over, then making just the right stroke and seeing it all come together.

With my art, I want to capture the spirit and personality of my subjects. I enjoy going beyond realism in trying to bring out characteristics of the subject with line, form, and color.  I love the challenge of finding that "something" in the subject that I can portray in my own way.


This is who I am through ink and paint.
