Born in McMillan, a small rural town in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan, Brenda acquired a great love for the outdoors. Hours were spent studying and appreciating nature, and as her interest grew so did her fascination to capture how she saw it through her eyes.
She started a dream, and at the age of eleven, with her parents help and encouragement, she began a life-long career in art. As her love for wildlife grew so did her need to paint it.
Brenda's studio is located her in Paradise, CA. From here, along with her husband Gene, and Welsh terrier, Shauni, she travels to sell her work. She is pleased that her original art work is owned and hangs in homes all over the world, and is honored to include the White House on that list.
