Introduction I opened my Etsy Shop in 2009 after being encouraged to do so by a woman I met at a local art show. She was so enthusiastic about Etsy that I just had to check it out for myself! Etsy looked like a good place for me to share my work with others and over the course of several years I have met and made friends with dozens and dozens of wonderful people from all over. Through Etsy I discovered Zentangles and ACEO's, which are both fun ways to express myself through the gift of art. Zentangles have opened up a world of patterns and designs for me and ACEO's (miniature pieces of art, size 2.5" x 3.5") afford me the opportunity to hone my artistic skills, via different medias, on a small scale. Most of my work is done on a smaller scale, size 9" x 12" being the largest size and 2.5" x 3.5" being the smallest. I have a blog, IrelandBrady.blogspot.com , where I post the majority of my pieces and, on many occasions, share WIPs (Works in progress) of larger pieces and share what I have learned from that drawing with others.
Interests ACEOs, Zentangles, Illustrations, Paper Dolls, Fairies, Mermaids, watercolors, and much more.
