I’m Brenda, an illustrator, designer, and delicious cinnamon roll maker! I live with my husband and two rambunctious kiddos in beautiful Colorado, USA. I am a second-generation latina and my artwork is heavily influenced by nature, my love of painting and story telling. I find so much joy in drawing little details and textures. My go-to tools are my ink pens, ipad, Procreate app and Adobe programs. I also love working traditionally with my paints, pastels, and colored pencils. You can find me drinking coffee and making art at my kitchen table any day of the week. I am also very fond of sharing my love of art with others through teaching and connecting with other artists around the world! I have a fun little interview at FridayDoodleClub.com if you'd like to get to know me a bit better.
I've joined forces with a few of my very talented artist friends to start a weekly art prompt challenge on Instagram. The Friday Doodle Club is random words picked every Friday that participating artists can doodle and sketch for the following 7 days to create a character that's fun and unique! www.fridaydoodleclub.com
I am very happy to be a part of the incredible Editartz team, an online creative community of illustrators from around the world that regularly shares their editorial, children's, and pattern design work based on monthly prompts. I help manage social media posts and I regularly share my own illustration work with the group. www.editartz.com
A new collective of global artists and illustrators who have met through online classes. We inspire and motivate each other and together develop our art careers! We can’t wait to see what this year brings! If you’d like to follow us we’re @illustration_nest
I have a class on Skillshare that teaches others how to create their own Animal Portraits. I also teach classes on painting, drawing and crafting at the local Parks and Rec Community Center. I enjoy not only teaching art, but encouraging others to pursue their creative passions.
