Despite having a father who is an accomplished artist (see his home page), Brenda somehow went most of her life without ever picking up a pencil or paintbrush. Instead, she went the academic route, got her MD and was quite content with her medical practice and raising her family.
This changed in late 2015 when she was introduced to watercolour. It was quite by accident and there certainly was no intent to actually paint. However, she was immediately captivated by the colours and the way the pigment moved on the paper. She has been painting and learning ever since. She has participated in solo and group shows and has even won a few awards for her paintings.
But the very best part is the fact that she gets to share this passion and continue to learn from her dear dad.
