Born in Mexico City but raised in Texas, Brenda Ciardiello is a watercolor artist heavily influenced by her bicultural and international experience of the world. She has lived / studied in Mexico, Italy, the U.K., New York City, New England, the Rocky Mountains and the Middle East.  Her artwork is fundamentally inspired by her love of discovering and living in new places and painting what those journeys and places mean to her.

Brenda paints contemporary landscapes, abstract art and botanicals that deal with themes of personal connection to nature, wonder and constant-change in the familiar.  Almost all of her work focuses on depicting the unique interplay of color, light and texture in otherwise fleeting elements: water, clouds, and flora.

Brenda currently lives and works in Fort Worth, Texas with her husband and three young sons.  She can be found chasing pretty skies, painting in her studio, cooking unnecessarily elaborate meals, or riding the Trinity Trails with her family and their Westie, Hamilton.  

She holds a Bachelor of Arts in Art History and Classical Civilizations from the University of Notre Dame, as well as a Master of Science in Education from The City College of New York.
