My name is Sheryl M Brodie.

'Adding beauty, joy and color
to your living spaces and special places.'

Quietgirlartful as a way of being...

began with the simple, pencil drawing of a quiet, 12-year-old girl.  Growing up I loved to read, play the piano and draw.  One day, inspired by the spunky, main character Sheila the Great from one of my favorite Judy Blume books, I grabbed a stubby No.2 pencil and a scrap of white paper.  After completing the drawing, I showed it to my mother.  Her smile beamed as she slid it into the corner of her dresser mirror and there it stayed for a very long time.  I felt so loved and seen on that day.  I couldn't believe that something I had created could bring such joy to someone else's life!  I knew that my identity and mission as an artist had just begun...

I have not heard a quote that summarizes my motivation for creating better than this:  'The purpose of Art is to justify living, to extend living and to remind others they are living.' 

-Artist, Rip Woods-

What I make is...

Art that is inspired by everyday people and life moments.  My quiet nature allows me to notice the details of living that may be overlooked or taken for granted. I see myself as an observer and chronicler of life--elevating the everyday. I invite the viewer of my artwork to 'read the story' behind the painting.

I feel that painting is the best medium for sharing my observations.  It is accessible, challenging, and allows me to communicate through a widely accepted and recognized medium.  My figurative style involves elements that reflect a balance between the static and dynamic.  My solo, duo, and group figures are usually interacting with the surroundings or each other in overt and subtle ways.

My vision is to bring the joy of art to the people.  I want people to know that original artwork is accessible and a wonderful way to not only provide a family legacy but to 'add beauty, joy and color to your living spaces and special places.' 

I would love to connect with you today!
