“Final Turn At The 



Brenda Delle

Studio #7


How much can one learn about an artist from looking at her work?  A review of Brenda Delle’s latest work rendered from her drawings or pictures taken on location, reveals her pleasure with line, motion and a bit of color. 

The artist, born in Chickamauga, Georgia was educated in the public schools of Chattanooga, Tennessee.  She graduated from the University of Chattanooga with a Bachelor of Science Degree.  She then moved to the Washington, D.C. area where she lived for three years.  During this time, she taught school in Prince George’s County Maryland at Oxen Hill High School. 

After a brief return to Chattanooga, she moved to New Orleans.  Here she felt at last she had found home.  Her artistic training began with a French Quarter workshop taught by Alan Flattmann, Pastel Society of America Master Pastelist.  In the years that followed, Delle studied watercolor and pastel with numerous nationally known artists and at the New Orleans Academy of Fine Art.  Her work during this time focused on animal portraits, especially those of cats and their people.  In 2003, she began studying with William Arthur Herring, a colorist from Horizon, Texas in Master Courses at Cloudcroft, New Mexico.  The courses focused on composition, drawing and the use of color. These courses greatly influenced her style because Herring encouraged her to use open color rather than the more traditional local color. Open color is chosen from emotion rather than what is actually seen. 

Moving into Mid City Studios in 2014 was a turning point for her artistic career.    Bio Continued
