Artist’s Website

Dorothy Braudy is an artist born in Los Angeles and raised in Kentucky. A graduate of the University of Kentucky, she received an M.F.A. from New York University and taught for many years at Pratt Institute, the University of Maryland, and Goucher College. Her work, which includes painting, photography, and printmaking, has been shown in New York, Washington, Baltimore, San Francisco, and Los Angeles, and is included in many private and public collections.

Dorothy’s original website was created in 2012. I was pleased and exited to bring the site forward with both a redesign and rebuild. The key goals accomplished included making the site mobile optimized, faster, easier to navigate, and displaying the the artist’s work prominently using pop-out lightboxes. To achieve the goals I created a custom WordPress custom theme and added all the new features using minimal plug-ins.
