About me

Braddy’s exhibition exemplifies the best of local talent. An emerging artist, showcased across the greater South East Corner region, Braddy’s expressionist style has earned her numerous awards. More than just beautifully dark and confronting imagery Braddy’s works are also deeply personal story pieces, each one telling a story featuring in the artist’s long battle in living with mental illness. The exhibition will highlight Braddy’s exciting talent while also voicing a powerful message of self-awareness, self-discovery, passion & perseverance, struggle and , bravery.

“Finding Ones Inner Self” is a mixed media show and highlights Braddy’s versatility in minimalist & expressionist paintings as well as abstract ceramic sculpture. The works change the gallery space into a place of privacy and intimacy, where the viewers are invited to see the world not only through the artist’s eyes but the artist themselves as well. Braddy’s approach to her art and the way the works are supposed to be experienced rather than merely seen is designed to break down the stigmas around mental illness, from both a societal point of view and also from an individual’s perspective.

Art lovers have had the opportunity to admire Braddy’s work in numerous group exhibitions across Australia in Brisbane, Sydney and Melbourne, as well as successful solo shows in Brisbane and Melbourne. Braddy was last year’s recipient of the Brisbane Festival, Art Highly Commended Award, 2017 and the Moreton Bay Regional Council’s Merit Award for their regional art prize in 2017. More recently, the 2018 Moreton Bay Region Council Art Brian Burke 25th Anniversary Award.


Her paintings can be impacting, moving, and healing,  and speak to the viewer of her inner struggles. Her work is always authentic.

 ” My paintings are an expression of my inner world. Through my art I’ve found the courage to break the silence.” Joanne Braddy.
