Critically acclaimed as Britain’s portrait painter, Brenda Burke has been summoned three times to paint the Royal Family. Her works have been widely exhibited in Europe and the United States and are included in many prestigious public, corporate and private collections. The appearance of her works in recent years on distinguished giftware and collectibles, such as music boxes, plates, prints, and canvas transfers has spread her fame throughout the World. In addition to her painting, Brenda is an accomplished sculptor and clothes designer. These talents have led to a most successful collection of limited edition wax dolls, produced in Brenda’s own studios and highly sought after by doll enthusiasts. Her extensive studies and collections of antique lace have made her an expert on this subject which is reflected in her uncanny ability to capture this beautiful material on canvas and incorporate it in her doll’s clothing designs. Brenda lives and works with her family in the charming seaside city of Hastings, England. Her role as a wife and mother has had extensive influence in the loving expression of feelings found in her work.
