Hello! I’m Brenda.

I’m an illustrator, graphic designer, and art teacher. I love making art, meeting other creatives, and sharing the lessons that I’ve learned along the way. I live next to the Rocky Mountains with my lovely husband and adorable two kiddos.

What is “On The Creative Road”?

If you are an artist, illustrator, singer, writer, dancer, crafter, inventor, dreamer, or in other words any kind of “creative” – YOU are On The Creative Road and I am too! It looks different for all of us. We all began our journey differently. There are a variety of detours we may have taken, unique places we are traveling to, pit stops we’ve made along the way, and even shortcuts we’ve discovered. It’s a grand adventure! I hope my stories from On The Creative Road can encourage you on your own travels!

What do you get for FREE?

My quarterly Bulletin - where I get to fill you in on all my creative happenings.

Monthly Travel Notes – short observations, life lessons, and fun little ditties about the creative life.

Don’t worry, I wont get spammy in your inbox and you can change frequency on Substack website any time.

Join me on the creative road!
