Brenda trained as a dress designer before venturing into painting. She regards herself as a colourist and uses acrylic paint for its’ quick drying qualities and for the pureness of colour. Brenda sees pattern and shape in everything around her, in landscape and still life, she will look for lost edges and the use of high horizon lines. Her work is inspired by marks that are left in the fields, forgotten footsteps you might say. Marks left by farmers or crops, cattle. Marks that change the colours of the soil or grasses. Lines that give direction and patterns. She interprets what she sees and uses colour to enhance the paintings.
Her work (which includes still life, landscape and the figure) is simplified and abstracted without losing the form. She teaches drawing and painting at workshops, she demonstrates for art groups and she also works with small groups in her studio. Brenda is a member of the National Acrylics Painters Association, and Bucks Art Society. She has NDD in Dress Design, a BHDAD in Art and Design and a HD in Fine Art from Hatfield University. Her recent work has been part of the Society of Women Artists exhibition at the Mall Galleries in London.
