Brenda Gaughan began painting after arriving in Colorado in 1984, inspired by the region’s intensity of color and light. Music is a primary source of inspiration for Brenda, who draws on the improvisational nature of jazz to express herself in texture, palette, and movement.
Brenda established Studio 306 in downtown Castle Rock, Colorado along with jeweler and metals artist Mary Murphy of Fiona Rose. The workspace provides a welcoming environment for creativity and collaboration with artists and clients. Brenda lives in Parker, Colorado with her husband and two children.
