Originally educated at Ealing School of Art (1968-70), Brenda, after having raised a family, pursued her passion for the arts years later in 1999. She studied at Heatherleys School of Fine Art in 2005 and then at The Prince's School of Drawing. She also studied with Andy Pankhurst and Thomas Newbolt.
Working principally in oils and pastels, her interest lie in life study, portraiture, still life and landscapes, in particular, her favourite landmark, Hammersmith Bridge.
Her paintings have been noted for their unique mood, brush work and colour, and her paintings are currently held in private collections around the globe.
