Brenda Philp is a fibre artist who employs felting, beading, stitching, and other techniques to create fresh, fun, and uplifting visual and wearable art. Her free-spirited, melodious, and unabashedly happy work is influenced by a lifelong love of music. She embraces the power of colour, composition, and texture as a means to stretch and expand the expressive potential of the fibre arts medium and is relentless in her search for new learning opportunities and unique materials to work with. Practical by nature, her art process makes use of recycled objects, natural materials, and ingenuity to create and promote beauty.
She studied at the Haliburton School of Art and Design in 2017 and has attended workshops with world-renowned fibre artists including Marjolein Dallinga, Jean Gauger, and Judith Dios. Her work has been exhibited at the Alberta Craft Council, Gracious Goods Cafe, and the Edmonton Public Library.
Brenda’s studio practice continues to evolve as she pursues new ways to share by teaching, presenting, and being a positive advocate for the arts.
