Brenda Brosi Benson

Brenda Brosi Benson was born and raised in Hannibal, Missouri and recived her degree in Art from Truman State University. She has studied watercolor in workshops with a variety of instructors including Duane Light, Marilynn Bradley and Paul Jackson. She taught art in the public school system for 26 years while she and her husband Danny raised their four children.

“Since I’ve retired from teaching art I am pursuing my first love, painting! My media of choice is watercolor, but I also enjoy drawing and ceramics. I have a secret desire to be a sculptor and lately have incorporated the third dimension into my watercolors.”
