Artist Brenda Williams

Brenda Williams (formerly Rogers) is an American Impressionist painter and clay artist. During a 14-year period of living in the Middle East and traveling extensively throughout Europe and the Far East, she found inspiration for her art and was able to take classes and workshops from internationally prominent artists such as Tina Ahmed and Margaret Henderson. Brenda was also fortunate to have studied for over a decade under well-known American Impressionist Anita Wolff.

Brenda’s studio is located in Fairfield, Connecticut. This is the perfect setting for her to create art that expresses her two main passions: appreciating and recording the natural beauty of the world and encouraging cultural and religious tolerance by emphasizing our similarities rather than our differences. Her work, in essence, examines the question, “What do we need to see in order to bring about peace on this planet?”
