Brenda has been sharing her love of art for more than 30 years. She has taught hundreds of students to paint in acrylics and oils, in the studio she co-owned and managed with her "Paintin' Friend" Ruth. She has explored many subjects and taught landscapes, still lifes, florals, animals, portraits, as well as drawing and perspective. Her paintings are mostly done in acrylics, and sometimes in Genesis Heat-set Paints, and Water-soluble Oils. She has been commissioned to create many paintings, and enjoys working with customers to create just the right feel for their unique painting. She loves creating a work of art that wows her customers.
As an artist since 1988, I taught painting part-time from my home while my children were young. Once the youngest started school full-time I opened up a studio with my business partner Ruth. We nurtured our "Paintin' Friends" Decorative Painting Studio for 9 years, providing art instruction and supplies for artists from beginner to advanced. For us it was a more than an art studio - it was a community of artists sharing their love for art.
My favourite paintings have always been landscapes. Now, I have become passionate about sharing my love for landscapes like the awe-inspiring beauty of the lakes and woods around Whitestone Lake. I love to head out in my kayak with my camera, especially first thing in the morning, to explore the lake and capture it's beauty.
