Brenda Hartill is best known for her experimental, abstract embossed , mixed-media paintings, collagraphs, etchings, watercolours, collages and encaustic works. Her main love is abstracting the essence of the landscape in richly coloured textured works, often enhanced with silver and gold leaf. Recent works include a series of watercolour paintings with collagraph embossings. She has also produced a series of mixed-media encaustic paintings. Her on-going fascination with erosion, weather patterns, natural textures and universal organic forms, lead to her current images.
