Hello, As you know my name is Brenda Berdnik, I live in Charlotte County, Florida with my husband Bill our son Billy and three dogs and one cat, a housefull.
I am originally from the green mountains of Vermont where I have always had my hands into something art related.
I started working as a graphic artist in the media department for an Insurance Company. My work there included creating Multi-Image Slide Shows for training and sales tools. I later became the Art Director of all printed material.
I met my husband in Florida in 1982. The following year, I moved to Florida and opened an advertising agency in Lee County called Imagery Advertising a full service agency. At the time we were the second largest in Lee County and received many Addy Awards for our work.
In 1996 I opened Timeless Treasures in Punta Gorda. A Gift Gallery and Studiov. At the same time I had a sales representative who sold my work throughout the Southeastern United States. I worked in watercolors, acrylics, acrylic enamels for glass, watercolor pencils to create designs for apparel, vintage textiles, quilting, and photography for stationery.
In 2001, my interest began to turn toward 3-D work. I took several workshops and classes in jewelry and began to love working with and forming metal. I learned techniques such as Champleve, Kumboo, Etching, and other enameling applications. For 3 years I fine tuned my skills and joined Sea Grape Gallery, a co-op of artists.
2006 was full of excitment. It started with my entry into an art show for an ESPN Redfish tournament. I created a framed three piece brass etching of a snook, redfish, and tarpon in their habitat. That piece won 2nd place in the show and People's choice Award. Six months later I was featured with an internationally known glass artist in a two person show in a local gallery.
In 2008 I went on a bus trip to an International Minature Art Show, I walked in the door and I was hooked! The work was unbelieveable and I was already doing reverse painting on glass with my jewlery so it was a great match. In 2009 I took first place in the Mix Medium category, and had seven pieces in the International Minature show in Wells England.
I have expanded in many directions since then including throwing pottery in 2010. I wanted to get out of the frame and this medium has let me do that. In the past few years I have started teaching some, and have increased clients in by graphic design business, and providing graphic work for non-profits.
In 2010 I opened, The Gallery of Fine Art located in Charlotte County. There are currently 19 artist/friends who are in the gallery. We all share the deep love for the arts, and the attention to detail in our work. You can visit the gallery thru my facebook page or if in the area pleases look us up.
Today I continue to learn and use all my skills from different fields to create one of a kind art treasures. God has blessed me with a natural talent which I try to make the most of each day. I hope my work brings pleasure to you.
