This piece is done in pen and ink, which is one of my favourite media to work with. I particularly enjoy the finer detail which this media allows e.g in emphasizing the individual feathers on the bird

Brenda was born in Marino but has lived most of her life in Balbriggan. She has four adult children and one grandchild and works full-time as a medical secretary.
She is a student of Skerries Art School for the past number of years and through this weekly class she has been encouraged to experiment with a lot of other media which she thoroughly enjoys.
Brenda's work has been exhibited in a number of venues in north County Dublin including Skerries Mills, Rush Library, Ardgillan Castle and The Gourmet Food Parlour, Swords.
I enjoy working with Oils and Watercolour but my favourite media to work with is Pen and Ink. I really enjoy the fine detail which pen and ink allows.
I am open to learning new techniques and practices and I recently attended workshops where I learned the art of Batik. I like landscapes but I seem to be drawn towards birds as my main subject.
