Brendas oil paintings have also been juried into numerous international, national, and regional competitions and can also be found in corporate and national collections. Brenda has been awarded Signature membership in International Plein Air Painters, the American Impressionist Society, and Plein Air Florida.
Painting āen plein airā is the way I express my intimate connection to the land. My paintings are windows into my world, and share with the viewer the peace and serenity I find in the timeless beauty of natureā
