Brenda Truesdale

Born in Miami, FL

Lives & works in Melbourne Beach, FL


Brenda Truesdale began her artistic career as an apprentice working for over 12 years at Bronzart Foundry in Sarasota, FL training in all aspects of metal casting.  During that time she became a master in wax work and mold making and adept in the patina process.  She has developed a distinctive style in her bronze castings.  Her smooth, linear lines reflect Brenda’s life-long love of creating three dimensions.  The main focus is to translate into bronze the essence of the subject - to capture a moment - and present it in a stylized form. Brenda's work has been described as being powerful with strong shapes yet they are also sensitive and provoke thought. The heart and spirit of the subject is brought out during the artistic process – the design starts as a simple idea and then transforms into the finished piece of artwork.
