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
Pen and Ink on Paper

Brenda was born in Marino but have lived most of my life in Balbriggan. I have four adult children and one grandchild. I work full-time as a medical secretary but I have always had a love of drawing. I am part of Skerries Art School for the past number of years and through this weekly class I have been greatly encouraged to experiment with a lot of other media which I thoroughly enjoy. My work has been exhibited in several venues in north County Dublin including Skerries Mills, Rush Library, Ardgillen 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 practices - I recently attended workshops where I learned the art of Batik. I like landscapes but I seem to be drawn towards birds as my subject area.
