Brenda’s need for creativity began at a very early age. After high school, there was never a question of whether Brenda would attend college or what she would study. She declared herself an Art major and began her studies. Each discipline brought new interest and motivation. After graduation, the reality of life as an artist became evident so she surrendered to her financial needs and took a job in advertising, graphic design and visual merchandising. She grew and excelled despite the constraints and found herself both appreciated and respected for her accomplishments in the retail industry.
Brenda came to Colorado from Georgia to visit a friend in 1999. She never left. She fell in love with the mountains, the colors, the weather and the people and found inspiration everywhere. After 3 years as an Interior Design Consultant, she finally decided to become a full time Fine Artist.
Brenda’s work has been shown in many types of venues from learning centers, restaurants and hotels to museums and galleries. Her exhibits include the Boulder Museum of Contemporary Art, The Dairy Center for the Arts, Wildfire Community Art Center, Element, Independence Gallery, The Four Seasons Resorts and The Buell in Denver. She is currently represented by Independence Gallery, Wire Grass Gallery and The Art Source in Denver.
