Brenda Ross -Finding Joy

Creative endeavors have occupied most of this Sarnians life. Brenda’s medium of choice for the last 7 years has been acrylic paint and paper collage. What are most exciting to her are colour, shape, texture and line. Utilizing an intuitive nonobjective “abstract” approach allows her the freedom to use all of these. It also gives the viewer the opportunity to bring their own interpretation to the work. It is Brenda’s hope that while viewing her work you will sense her purpose – FINDING JOY.
