|Trained early in drawing from live models and painting, Brenda Dunn-Lardeau gradually turned towards sculpture.
Her preferred material is clay, because of its flexibility that brings one back to the essential. For her terra cotta sculptures, either hand-painted or finished with patinas, she studied with sculptors and ceramists including Yevkiné de Gréef, Maya Lightbody, Marie-Lyne Veilleux, Jean-Louis Emond, France Andrée Sevillano, Michel Viala, Sara Mills and Violette Dionne.
She draws her inspiration either from the tragedy of current events or on the opposite side, from the ironies of life. A constant in her work is that of human dignity across the ages, despite the trials and tribulations of the world.
She has exhibited her work at the Cultural Center in Town of Mount Royal, the Art Center of Dunham, TD Bank (Beaconsfield) and at the annual Nature and Creation Exhibit at the Domaine des Côtes d’Ardoise vineyard (Dunham) as well as at the CUSM Gallery in Montreal. She has also co-curated the « Resplendent Illuminations » exhibit on
