Brenda Mangalore

Artist bio

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. 

You desire more sacred connection in both your soulful & physical spaces. Not just beautiful on the surface but deeply felt too.
Brenda’s paintings creates presence + soul connection that explores the depths of our life experiences like grief & fear dancing with joyful colours and paint. Her work is about connection to ourselves, to each other and to the divine.

Art is like faith and love, chaos and structure.
There is beauty in the mess!

And if we let it, it can be an anchor of self-expression in our spaces and in our lives.

I create art because...

it is a calling as an Artist to be the bridge for the world between the tangible and the intangible. The art I create serves as reminders and windows to the intangible energies, emotions & experiences we encounter in our life journey

I am different to most artists because...

my art goes beyond self expression, composition & colour. It is a mirror for the viewer to 'see' and feel into their inner spiritual connection & soulful self and the wisdom they have within

When you look at my art, the thing I want you to feel is...

a sense of recognition as well as wonder at the beauty of feeling seen and known. To connect to the spark of joy and purpose within that may have been neglected due to the busy, noisy distractions of life

The thing I most want to say to non-artists is...

that creativity is within all of us. When you connect with beauty, colour or your preference of art -- it is a reflection of your inner creative Muse. Some of us use our creativity for making, others for solving world issues and yet more who direct it to excuses for why they can't.

I believe art is an important part of our lives because...

It enables us to connect deeper into our humanity and tap into strengths that will be needed to meet our fullest potential. It gives us joy and purpose and permission to embrace all of who we are in both our celebrations and grief.
