Brenda Sutton Rose, the artist

Brenda Sutton Rose is a writer and an artist. She is the author of DOGWOOD BLUES, a work of southern fiction that was nominated for a Georgia Author of the Year Award. Her short stories and essays have been published in numerous magazines and journals. Among her stories and stories not yet written, Brenda finds inspiration for her paintings.


As an artist, I prefer to paint in oils, though I often include cold wax and other mediums to enhance my works. I aim to deliver paintings that evoke a raw, visceral response from the viewer. I aim to deliver paintings that fill the observer with a new sense, something deep and soulful, something that sweeps the viewer from within and without. As a writer with a keen sense of place, I draw inspiration from the southern landscape and culture, from my ancestral roots that grow deep in the South and reach into Ireland, Scotland, and England. Music, labor, play, and the beauty of the earth are often depicted in my works, yet the one thing that always drives me is the weaving of story and painting. My paintings tell stories, and my stories are retold in paintings.
