Brenda Smith

Originally from California, Brenda moved to Fishers, Indiana, in 2006. Always a lover of the arts, Brenda enjoys pursuing dance, music and most recently 2D art. After dabbling in different mediums, with the idea of creating art for her home, she fell in love with oil painting. Being primary self taught, Brenda’s passion and focus has been on realism.

Brenda’s desire for her art is to encourage a feeling of connection. She believes our inner being thrives as we connect with others, God, nature and even memories. Brenda is inspired and intrigued by nature. The mysteries of water, its reflections and reactive movement, she finds mesmerizing. The vast array of rich and vibrant colors that are found in simple wild flowers, distant hills and sunsets bring her a joy she wants to share. Brenda loves painting with oils because they are deep, forgiving and not to be hurried…a little like herself.
