WATERCOLORS BY BRENDA ANN

BRENDA ANN'S SERIOUS INTEREST IN WATERCOLOR BEGAN IN 2012 WHILE ATTENDING WORKSHOPS WITH THE FLORIDA KEYS WATERCOLOR SOCIETY. FOR YEARS, SHE ENJOYED VISITING THE ANNUAL EXHIBITIONS OF THE FLORIDA KEYS WATERCOLOR SOCIETY. THEY WERE AN INSPIRATION TO HER, VIEWING COLORFUL TROPICAL PAINTINGS OF LOCAL FLORIDA KEYS WILDLIFE AND SCENERY.  SHE LATER JOINED THE SOCIETY AND BECAME THEIR PUBLICITY CHAIR, ASSISTING WITH SOCIAL MEDIA AND WEB DESIGN. SHE IS HONORED TO BE SERVING AS THE PRESIDENT OF FKWCS, A POSITION SHE HAS HELD SINCE 2013. BRENDA ANN CONTINUES TO OPERATE ISLAND STUDIO WHICH WAS OPENED IN 2003 IN STONE HARBOR, NEW JERSEY, WHERE SHE TEACHES CERAMICS, MOSAICS, PAINT ON CANVAS AND GLASS FUSION.


SHE IS ALSO A MEMBER OF THE GARDEN STATE WATERCOLOR SOCIETY, THE NEW JERSEY WATER COLOR SOCIETY, THE PHILADELPHIA WATER COLOR SOCIETY, THE AMERICAN WATERCOLOR SOCIETY, AND THE NATIONAL WATERCOLOR SOCIETY.


SHE HAS BEEN INVOLVED IN NUMEROUS JUDGED AND JURIED WATERCOLOR EXHIBITIONS, INCLUDING THE GARDEN STATE WATERCOLOR SOCIETY'S 48TH ANNUAL JURIED SHOW IN 2017 - "OUR WORLD THROUGH ARTIST'S EYES" AT D&R GREENWAY, PRINCETON, NJ, THE SPRING 2017 JURIED MEMBER EXHIBITION OF THE NATIONAL WATERCOLOR SOCIETY IN CALIFORNIA, THE 2016 PHILADELPHIA WATER COLOR SOCIETY JURIED EXHIBITION AT WEST CHESTER UNIVERSITY IN PENNSYLVANIA, THE 2014 REDBONE GALLERY EXHIBITION OF THE FLORIDA KEYS WATERCOLOR SOCIETY IN ISLAMORADA, 2 OF THE KEY WEST ART CENTER EXHIBITIONS OF THE FLORIDA KEYS WATERCOLOR SOCIETY, AND 4 OF THE JUDGED SHOWS OF THE FLORIDA KEYS WATERCOLOR SOCIETY AT THE MARATHON COMMUNITY THEATRE IN MARATHON. ALTHOUGH SHE ENJOYS ALL TYPES OF WATERCOLOR PAINTING, SHE IS BEST KNOWN FOR PAINTINGS OF NOSTALGIC LANDMARKS OF THE NEW JERSEY SEASHORE AND THE FLORIDA KEYS. SHE PAINTS MANY HISTORIC PLACES IN KEY WEST, CAPE MAY, STONE HARBOR AND AVALON. BRENDA ANN PRINTS AND SHIPS PROFESSIONAL ARCHIVAL GIGLEE PRINTS OF HER ARTWORK. THESE PRINTS EVOKE FOND MEMORIES OF THE FRIENDLY, WARM AND RELAXED PACE OF LIFE IN THE NEW JERSEY SHORE, FLORIDA KEYS AND KEY WEST BEACH COMMUNITIES. SHE DIVIDES HER TIME BETWEEN MARATHON, FLORIDA AND STONE HARBOR, NEW JERSEY.

SHE HAS WON SEVERAL AWARDS FOR HER PAINTINGS AND HAS TAKEN WORKSHOPS TAUGHT BY WATERCOLORISTS ANNE ABGOTT, LYNN FERRIS, KATHLEEN DENIS, LIAN QUAN ZHEN, TOM JONES, CHARLES PASSARELLI, SEAN CALLAHAN AND MEL STABIN. HER ART IS IN PRIVATE HOMES WORLDWIDE.
