Artist, teacher, curator, author, judge, mentor

Brenda Gael Smith creates textile paintings and sketches made from a rich palette of her hand-dyed fabrics complemented by extensive, textural stitching. Much of her work is inspired by the colour and patterns of the natural world. Using a process of abstraction, she captures the essence of her subjects in simplified form. Working improvisationally, she refines line, shape, colour and texture to evoke a sense of place, express an idea, highlight an issue or elicit an emotional response.

Daily walks are a creative habit integral to Brenda's studio practice. By closely observing her surroundings, and taking hundreds of photos, she has a bountiful inspiration bank that informs her work. From the dye pot, to the design wall, to the sewing machine, she also embraces the serendipity factor.
