Carolyn Brady

[BA] Painting

[Minor] Business Law

My paintings are inspired by fond memories of growing up in rural New England, where I spent most of my childhood immersed in nature. After moving to Nebraska from Massachusetts, I have found myself reflecting upon dreamy memories of the ocean, rural hills and fields. I specifically study the atmosphere of these places in my memory and aim to convey the same atmosphere in my paintings. The landscapes I create help me reconnect to these memories as I aim to capture the sublimity of nature through paint.


Carolyn Brady will earn her BA with an emphasis in painting and a minor in Business Law from the University of Nebraska Lincoln, graduating in May. Examining the landscape of New England, she explores the idea of capturing the sublimity of nature while reflecting upon her childhood memories of the North East. Brady’s work has been exhibited in the 32nd Annual Juried Undergraduate Exhibition at the Eisentrager-Howard Gallery, as well as at Tugboat Gallery in Lincoln, NE. Brady’s work is also a part of the DA Davidson Corporate Collection.
