Brenda has lived all her life amongst the natural beauty of the Pacific Northwest; from Washington to Alaska and British Columbia. She and her family have journeyed together in the adventure of living in remote parts of the North Pacific Coast.
Brenda has a BS degree in Human Development and Elementary Education. She enjoys working with children of all ages (including adults!) and is actively involved in her local school and church community, and in volunteering in several organizations in Prince Rupert. Brenda is inspired daily by Creation and enjoys the challenge of expressing her love of color and texture in nature with watercolour, ink, oils, acrylic, photography and pressed flowers. She has been painting since 2000. More recently she has been working with metals, creating jewelry from recycled copper, silver, aluminum and brass. Her work is in private collections around the world and on display at the Ice House Gallery in Prince Rupert, BC.
