Madelynne Brown Broyles

With a love for art since childhood and private lessons that helped Madelynne Brown Broyles discover new mediums and methods of paint modifications, her artistic passion and talents led her to Brigham Young University where she earned a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree. Madelynne worked as a graphic designer for about ten years and sees the impact of this profession in her work. Madelynne later got a Master's Degree in Social Work, and has worked as an art therapist, teaching sculpture, ceramics, pottery and stained glass in a clinical setting.

Broyles relocated to the Denver area from Salt Lake City over five years ago and she currently works in a private practice, specializing in eye movement desensitization and reprocessing or EMDR for trauma, as well as at her local county's Crisis Stabilization Unit. Finding her artistic outlet in her creations is a welcome diversion from her more serious occupation as a social worker.

Broyles also creates beautiful ceramics which feature her favorite theme – dragonflies. Although working with ceramics is a time-consuming process, it is also a very fulfilling creative outlet. Broyles enjoys many mediums, but she seems to always return to her favorite medium - acrylic.

"Colors seem to brighten my mood," Broyles often says when told how bright her colors are. "I like bright!" However, black and white seems to have that same eye popping contrast, and Madelynne works in many mediums. She recently had a coloring book published, available on Amazon, called "Expressions of Joy."
