“Exquisitely refined little pictures that are the visual equivalent of tone poems.” - J. Sanders Eaton, “Gallery & Studio”

Brie Dodson is a realist painter who likes finding the enigma in the subjects she portrays. She paints skies, open country, and water; and small still life works, often of fresh produce with a vintage object or two thrown in. A painting may begin with nothing more than the impulse to explore something visually fascinating. Over time, other aspects emerge. Often the quality of light becomes evocative.

Brie's work is on permanent display at The Episcopal Church & Visual Arts website, and was exhibited at the 75th General Convention of the Episcopal Church in 2006. Her painting "Sacred Ground" won Best in "Future Visions" in the 2007 Masterpiece Elite Salon Art Contest co-sponsored by Masterpiece Artist Canvas and The Artist's Magazine, and was displayed at the National Art Materials Trade Association convention in Chicago. In 2005, her painting "The Soul Takes Flame" was presented at the Museum of Biblical Art (MOBIA) in New York City.

Brie's work has been featured in Gallery & Studio, The Living Church, Art and Christianity, ManhattanArts, and other publications. It has been exhibited at various venues in New York City, Washington, D.C., and several states; and resides in many private collections.

A native Texan, Brie moved to the Washington, D.C. area during the Johnson administration. She studied at Telluride Association's Cornell University summer program and attended the College of William and Mary. She has worked as a radio disc jockey, submarine field engineer, journalist, illustrator, and art director. Her commercial art was used in projects for ADP, Manhattan Bagel, Bell & Howell, GM North America, GM Europe, Harley-Davidson, Kawasaki, Mercedes-Benz, and the FAA.

The Dodson household includes Brie's husband, Tom, and four sons from ages 15 through 35.
