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 (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.

She has worked at the Queen’s Park Centre in Aylesbury once a week for many years, helping students to develop their own style.

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.
