Brenda is a Canadian artist returning to Art at the end of 2018.

Her favourite Art projects focused on drawing and painting, including painting large wall-sized murals.  


Brenda’s favourite subjects continue to be people and animals. Brenda likes the challenge of creating realistic images using various mediums including coloured pencil, graphite, pastel and acrylic. She enjoys taking her own reference photos and working from them and life.
