Brenda explores island geographies, especially places with borders within urban landscapes. Using an interplay of photography, drawing, print and writing, she researches and documents change. Her images and writings reflect upon identity and isolation, poetic responses to changing physical landscapes.
Brenda coordinates the Lady Bay Arts Trail - a community arts event which has taken place since 1995 in Lady Bay - 2 miles south of Nottingham City centre. With 25 years in social care management & policy making, Brenda develops her art practice helping to promote artist engagement in the local communities.
