Instructor Bio

I am Brenda Townsend of Brilliant Spectrum Art. I'm a California-Credentialed Arts Educator, working in watercolor, acrylic, colored pencil, pastels and more on paper, murals, and theatre sets. Some of my favorite subjects include lights, tikis, mermaids, birds, flowers, and/or shells in a fantasy setting, with an exotica/retro vibe.

Major artistic influences include Disney artist, Mary Blair, The Artist SHAG, Oceanic Art and the Natural World. I work in multi-media, and my process often involves using hand made stamps and stencils and using found objects to print. I paint my current thoughts and discoveries on top of these backgrounds, in a semi-realistic style, using exciting and surprising color palettes.

I feel passionate about creating uplifting, fun, and beautiful works with broad appeal to provide viewers an emotional respite from everyday life. My work is escapist, joyous, and unapologetic, exuding positive energy which allows viewers to recharge and be transported while experiencing an enhanced reality.

Our Special Guest Artist is Mischele B Salvant of Poetic Artistry!

Mischele is a surreal expressionist artist using visual mediums to showcase Black Excellence. In 2009 she relocated from Northern California to San Diego, graduating from San Diego High School.

Mischele established her art business, Poetic Artistry, in May 2020. She was raised by activism and has always lived as a revolutionary Feminist Black Woman. Her art presents an experience meant to transform modern day surreal expressionism and redefine fine art. Much of Mischele’s collection measures cultural complexities specifically intended to challenge social injustices.

Representation has always been her leading mission when it comes to producing art pieces. Mischele's hope is that her artistic offerings can further engage our BIPOC community by helping create moments for change, while building confidence within our community. She is dedicated to pursuing her own passions that will in turn uplift our community through the arts.
