Graduate of Capilano University’s Illustration and Graphic Design program, Brenna found illustration work on the Sunshine Coast soon after graduation, and the local Sunshine Coast landscapes inspire her to this day. Brenna’s older works are realistic, but her latest series Geo•Coast is a celebration of simplicity, geometry and the near-abstraction of familiar landscapes.
For Geo•Coast, Brenna created the Arbutus of Gospel Rock, a wild geometric version of the same location featured in her earlier painting the Grace of Gospel Rock. The same place, two approaches. Brenna finds that natural places have the capacity to be different on each visit, and she strives to impart that same quality to her art.
