Brenda Runnegar

Brenda Runnegar’s forty odd year-long practice is characterised by being surreal and dreamlike. Her exquisitely detailed and quietly confronting work is inspired by the natural world and explores the complex vulnerabilities and strengths of the human condition. She has worked variously in the arts and crafts and began as a Textile Artist in the 1970s whilst living in London and studied at the Stanhope Institute. She completed a Master of Fine Arts by research in 2007 and has worked professionally as an Educator, Arts Administrator, Gallery Manager and Project Manager in the private, public, and not-for-profit sectors
