Artist Broderick Crawford was born and raised in the southern Appalachian Mountains in the small town of Tiger, Ga. Raised by a father and mother who operated a kennel, their love for animals was instilled into Broderick early on. Growing up he was also surrounded with some of the most beautiful mountains and landscapes the world has to offer. Deep rooting a love that is beyond words to describe his appreciation for all nature has to offer. Combing the mountain sides and rivers from his early years until today is what drives his artistic talent. Coming from a strong genetic background of artistic ancestors, Broderick is a completely self taught artist. Broderick works in different mediums, but his personal favorite is acrylic. He works on both canvases and masonite panels. He has a unique and an occasional varied style. Impressionism, realism and some abstraction make up most of his work. Through his creativeness Broderick hopes he affords his collectors the opportunity to get to share some of what he sees in the beauty of our natural world. Some of his collectors compare his work to the old classic styles of days gone by. Since he began painting seriously in 1992, Broderick has produced over 80 Limited Edition prints, numerous originals and commissioned pieces. An avid competitor, he competes in numerous painting competitions. He enters the Federal Duck Stamp Competition every year, and he competes in most states that open their competitions up nationally. He has placed in the top 5 and 10 many times. His most recent national competition wins include 1st place in the 2011 / 2012 Idaho Ducks Unlimited Sponsor Print and the 2010 / 2011 Georgia Ducks Unlimited Sponsor Print. This was his second year in a row for winning Georgia. Other previous wins include 2009 Colorado Habitat Stamp Competition and 1st place in the Idaho Ducks Unlimited 2010/2011 competition. Broderick's rendition of an old hunting scene with two guys throwing out all Challenge Grade Mason Decoys was chosen hands down by all the judges. Giving him the title of 2010/2011 Idaho DU Artist of the Year. Most days Broderick works and paints at his studio at home. However, on Friday and Saturday's he can be found along side his wife Michele working in the Gallery to meet and socialize with friends and collectors. Always be sure to visit to sit and talk a spell if you're in North Georgia.
