Brenda's work has been featured in local and state magazine publications such as Missouri Life and Nashville Arts and was featured on Hannibal's 35th and 36th Annual Autumn Folklife Festival Posters.

Several of Brenda's watercolors are permanently displayed at Barnard's Mill Art Museum in Glen Rose, Texas, Western Illinois University in Macomb, Illinois, Quincy City Hall in Quincy, Illinois, and Hannibal Clinic and Hannibal National Bank in Hannibal, Missouri.

Brenda has illustrated the children's book, My Tractor and Me, by Mia Pennewell and had her work printed on Southgate brand chili cans.
