Brenda Mangalore

Brenda began her professional creative life as a graphic designer for one of the biggest greeting card companies in the world, where she nurtured her love of colour and composition.

However, 4 years into her dream design career her inner calling to paint could not be silenced. Leaving her career behind, she had her first solo exhibition in 2011 and boldly launched her new life as a visual artist in full colour.

Brenda's work is a dance of colour, soul & imagination. Sometimes they whisper an invitation to explore its hidden details. Sometimes they are a chaotic story of struggle as the abstract nature battle with organic & figurative forms.

Shaped by change, experimentation & questions raised in her musings & meditations, Brenda also credits her past life as a designer in the creative process.

"The depth and subtlety of colours, play of pattern and detail are born from my designer instincts... purposely designed to evoke visual & emotional reactions."

On the other hand, Brenda also depends on her intuition and the inspiration of the moment to take over. Allowing the painting to emerge naturally, often changing course along the way. Applying multiple layers of free-flowing colour with organic shapes, patterns and symbols.

Like a memory of a dream filtered by emotions & intuition. It's secrets & history revealed only to those who pause to have a closer look.
