This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Photo-Realist watercolorist, printmaker Carolyn Brady was born in Chickasha, Oklahoma in 1937. She died on May 5, 2005. Brady studied from 1955 to 1958 at Oklahoma State University in Oklahoma City, receiving her B.F.A. degree from the University of Oklahoma in Norman in 1959, and her M.F.A. degree there in 1961.

She moved to New York City in 1961, where she met artists, including Photo-Realist painter Joseph Raffael, while working as a textile designer for Jack Prince. In 1963, she traveled in Europe. Brady moved to St. Louis in 1970, where she began her work with watercolor, using it in studies for the sewn pictures she exhibited there. Developing an ever-greater interest in the medium, she began taking photographs upon which she would ultimately base her watercolors, particularly in 1975 when she moved to Baltimore where she painted full time using the watercolor medium. Painting primarily bouquets of flowers in interior settings, Brady's watercolors became larger in scale and more sensuous after 1981, with intense color and contrasts of light and dark. She moved from Baltimore to New York City in 2001.

In 1999, Brady produced sixteen lithographic monotypes at the Tamarind Institute in Albuquerque, New Mexico. She has taught at the Colorado Women's College in Denver and University of Missouri in Saint Louis.
