Brenda paints in several mediums and contemporary styles. Able to slip with ease between the challenges of portraiture, human form, landscapes, still life and abstract work, she passionately strives to capture the spirit, mood and emotions that inspire and often compel her to paint. Mostly abstracted, her work is attempting to display the spirit of the place rather than a photographic image.
Her work was short-listed for the SAA Artist of the Year and has twice been awarded Best Abstract Painting and twice the Best Themed Painting and twice Best in Exhibition at various art groups and presented a medal at The New Forest Show. She has held regular workshops, judged work and has also demonstrated aspects of her artwork to various local groups.
She has exhibited at the following venues: Southampton City Art Gallery, Forest Arts Centre, Five Arrows Gallery, Lesley Errington Gallery, The Red House Gallery, the New Forest Show and Romsey Shows, Best of Hampshire Artists, and also regularly exhibits in the Hampshire Open Studios and at art groups and societies throughout the New Forest area.
