The last to be finished in this collection - there were so many moments of frustration & elation. Highs and lows as I found my flow with my new life as a mama of two. My studio had changed but found it's feet. I surrendered to the Seasons I found myself in. The little pockets of details were like little pockets of memories and visualisations of future memories. I can see this hanging over the fireplace for daily contemplation and exploration of it's hidden details. A meditative reminder to look deeper, to surrender and to flow with the seasons you find yourself in. From my LIKE FAMILY May 2018 collection. These paintings continue my exploration of spirals as an anchor amongst the 'mess' of chaos & colour. Life is messy & chaotic, so is going after your dreams. Whether that is building a business, raising a family or a combination or everything. There IS beauty in the mess! If you allow it, art can be an anchor for self-expression in your life. This collection was created in the months after the birth of my second baby. It was like a rebirth and rediscovery of my self & my dreams. Some were painted inbetween feeds and naps. Some were birthed in a flurry of inspired action. (Just like the birth of Raven!) Like family, the collection on the surface looks higgledy piggledy. But at the heart of it all, their essence is the same. They may not all get along all the time, but the love is there. It holds the anchors of the past (from the spirit of my grandmother who watches over us) and the anchors of my dreams of the future for my girls. May these paintings serve as inspiration for you to find your anchors & joy in connection with your family -- whether by blood or choices, family are a spiral of focus that helps us see the beauty in the mess!

Brenda began her creative life as a graphic designer for one of the biggest greeting card companies in the world, where she nurtured her love of colour and composition. However, 4 years into her dream design career her inner calling to paint could not be silenced. Leaving her career behind, she had her first solo exhibition in 2011 and boldly launched her new life as a visual artist in full colour. Brenda's work is a dance of colour, soul & imagination. Sometimes they whisper an invitation to explore its hidden details. Sometimes they are a chaotic story of struggle as the abstract nature battle with organic & figurative forms. Shaped by change, experimentation & questions raised in her musings & meditations. Brenda also credits her past life as a designer in the creative process. "The depth and subtlety of colours, play of pattern and detail are born from my designer instincts... purposely designed to evoke visual & emotional reactions." On the other hand, Brenda also depends on her intuition and the inspiration of the moment to take over. Allowing the painting to emerge naturally, often changing course along the way. Applying multiple layers of free flowing colour with organic shapes, patterns and symbols. A new story with each additional layer, so the process of creation becomes another facet of the story behind Brenda's paintings. A story that focuses on the inner landscape of both artist & viewer. Like a memory of a dream filtered by emotions & intuition. It's secrets & history revealed only to those who pause to have a closer look.
