According to Brenda Calhoun, “I believe art is an expression of the soul. A quote by Martha Graham best describes how I feel about my artwork and that of my fellow artists: ‘There is a vitality, a life force, an energy, a quickening, that is translated through you into action, and because there is only one of you in all time, this expression is unique.’ Being creative is my way of connecting with and expressing who I am. As I grow and change as a person, my art also changes to reflect the person I have become. “In my still lifes, florals and tranquil scenes I endeavour to portray the beauty in nature, and in the man-made objects we use in our daily lives. My paintings are an expression of my love of colour and light.It is always the light that dances across a flower, an object or a scene that inspires me to try recreate my impressions with paint on canvas. In my paintings, I especially enjoy the challenge of portraying the ethereal beauty of flowers, as well as, portraying the effects of light on calm waters in my tranquil scenes and on glass and pottery objects in my still lifes.”
