A resident of Columbia Falls, Montana, Sheryl Bodily received his early art training from an uncle and later at Brigham Young University. Known for Indian scenes with children, old cabins, stage coaches, wagon trains and wildlife, his work is in many collections including that of Lyndon Johnson. In Ellensburg, Washington, he won the Goodey Indian Culture Award at the National Art Show.
His enthusiastic interest in Indian people and their contemporary culture has continued to grow over the years and has had a tremendous influence on his art. Mr. Bodily first remembers drawing in the first grade of the Meridian Idaho Grade School, and being told at that time by his teacher that someday he would become an artist. The artist laughingly suggested that, "it took nearly thirty years to prove her right."
