Brenda Estill

Brenda EstillI live on Vancouver Island where my artwork is influenced and informed by my local environment. There is power in beauty and it is essential to me that my paintings portray this through the palette and forms on the canvas, inspiring and soothing, engaging and informing. The perfection is in the success of the message and not in the rendering of the image.

Subject matter could include abstracted flowers, stripes, a curtain in the breeze. All of these images refer to the many roles I have played as a woman. Ultimately, most of these images will not be seen as I continue to cover and repaint in the manner of a palimpsest. Hints of the past are evident in the many layers causing my paintings to become a metaphor for memory.
