Bradley Shoemaker is highly regarded as one of Pennsylvania's foremost realist watercolor painters. Known for his unusual technique of building layers of glazes over washes, this slow build-up of color results in extraordinary luminosity, warmth and richness.

Born in 1953 in Sunbury, Pennsylvania, Brad began painting at an early age on farms in the rural areas outside his hometown. After completing his Masters of Fine Arts in Painting from Pennsylvania State University in 1979, Brad's award-winning paintings have been featured in numerous juried, group and solo exhibitions, including Mickelson Gallery (Washington, D.C.), William Penn Museum (Harrisburg, PA), Southern Alleghenies Museums of Art (Pennsylvania), and the Wally Findlay Galleries (New York City).

For twenty years Shoemaker has published limited edition prints of his watercolor paintings, having several sold out editions. Capturing the beauty and serenity of the small towns and landscapes in and around the Susquehanna Valley of Pennsylvania, Bradley Shoemaker's limited edition prints and original watercolors are found in private and corporate collections throughout America and worldwide.
