Brenda Matsen ~ Fine Art


I am a self-taught artist, returning to art after a career in Health Sciences. I grew up on a farm in northern British Columbia with a passion for drawing horses and people. During high school I enjoyed a variety of art projects with a focus on drawing and painting including painting large wall-sized murals in our high school and for an outdoor stage for the local Billy Barker Days annual Summer event. My favourite summer job was designing and painting a couple large wall murals of the McDonald’s characters for the local McDonald’s Restaurant out building.

I enjoy creating realistic images and using various mediums including coloured pencil, pastel, graphite and paint.   My favourite subjects continue to be people and animals with botanicals becoming a favourite too! 

I am a member of the Pearl Ellis Gallery  (PEG) Fine Arts Society,  Pastel Artists.Ca and the Colored Pencil Society of America (CPSA).
