Born in Willow Street Pennsylvania in the USA in 1959, Chuck Bradley has established an impressive reputation as an artist and commercial photographer in Australia over the past 27 years.
A resident of Scotland Island north of Sydney, his arresting artistic work has taken precedence during the past four years and it has been acclaimed by crowds and critics alike.
His appointment as "Artist in Residence" at he Bradman Museum and International Cricket Hall of Fame in Bowral followed comparable engagements at Manly Regional Art Gallery and Museum and the Manly Sea Life Sanctuary in 2012.
The Manly Regional Art Gallery and Museum staged his solo exhibition "Nostalgica"- and indeed acquired two images for it's collection - and Manly Arts Festival facilitated his solo installation, "Life Aquatic" which had its genesis at the Sea Life Sanctuary.
He has also enjoyed success and won various awards in Australia and overseas for his magical "life Aquatic' and "A Day at the Zoo" series.
Living on Pittwater at Scotland Island with his wife Marijo and sons Aaron 20, and Adam 17, Chuck commutes by tinny and revels in the daily sightings of aquatic life. When not on the water and seeking new subject matter to photograph he is centre stage as drummer for his blues band Sly Dogs.
His fascination with cricket and, inevitably, the legend of Don Bradman, began with his arrival to Australia in the 1980's when Clive Lloyd's peerless West Indian team carried all before them.
