Brenda Pon
Visions by Pon

Brenda Pon is a Cree Metis artist whose heritage includes Chinese, Irish and Scottish. Born and raised in Edmonton, Alberta, her early years were strongly influenced by both her Chinese and Metis kin. She has been on a creative journey throughout her life.

In 2011 Brenda and her partner Morley spent their first winter on Vancouver Island. They loved the easy winters and the island life so much that they decided to buy a home in 2013. Living in Nanaimo has greatly influenced her art. Many of her works express her love of nature. Her favourite walks include the big trees of the old growth forest at Cathedral Grove and the rocky coastal beaches of Pacific Rim Park.

The subject matter of Brenda’s art ranges from her Metis culture and traditions to nature and landscapes. The themes can be quite ethereal and motivated by her dreams and visions. She chooses watercolour, acrylics or oils depending on her subject matter and sometimes mixed media helps her convey her message.

Brenda continues to learn and develop her skills. For her art is like meditation….

“I feel clean and whole afterward.”
