About the Artist

brendaInternationally renowned artist , Brenda Councill's career spans 35 years with large scale projects that span the globe. Recognized as a master muralist and fine artist, she recently completed the largest contemporary painted dome in the southeast. This North Carolina landmark appears at the Research Campus in Kannapolis. Visit nearby Appalachian State University and view 2 massive murals sponsored by The Belk Group and dedicated to the College of Education Building and The Belk Library.  Hickory Museum of Art sponsored a retrospective in 2012 of her regional work in the state of North Carolina. Martha Stewart exclaimed, " Brenda Councill is Michelle-angelo!" after climbing 100 feet of scaffolding to meet the artist at work.  Her popularity among collectors and the public's interest has been the focus of a PBS/UNC-TV segment on the artist. FOX, CBS and NBC have all run footage on Councill's painted ceilings and other public work projects.  She likes to break from her large scale work and teach watercolor workshops on select cruise ships and resorts. Brenda was born in Wilmington, NC but grew up in Jacksonville, Florida. Her career was launched in 1963, at the age of 7, with her debut exhibition of paintings at the Jacksonville Museum of Arts and Sciences.  Early recognition of her talent motivated the creation of design projects that attracted the national media including an appearance on NBC's TODAY SHOW.  In 1987, she opened a second studio in New York and began an impressive list of solo and group exhibitions.
