Brenda Anne Sullivan

In order to better support our artists, we have enlisted videographer James Dobos to shoot introductory videos which we are posting to the website to help you get better acquainted with the diverse community that makes up A Gift of Art.

Brenda Anne Sullivan

Brenda’s career in ceramics started with a functional production line produced in her first studio gallery in Pointe Claire, Que. There she supplied individual collections, gift shops & corporate commissions; from The Bay in Montreal, to the McMichael gallery in Kleinberg. Brenda has participated in numerous juried shows in Canada, US and Britain is now represented by 6 galleries in Eastern Ontario including her own studio gallery Dragon Clay in Port Hope. Her work has been featured in newspapers and magazines and is often featured on posters for art shows including the One of a Kind in Toronto and Signatures in Ottawa. In 2010 her “Mad Hatter” teapot was accepted into the Kamm Teapot Foundation in the US. Her work is “interestingly enveloped in a cloud of ascetic possibilites” Gil McElroy Fusion magazine – Fall 2016

She received her formal education in pottery with Rosalie Namer at MacDonald College in Montreal 1969-71, and continued with numerous workshops, conferences and courses. 2010 saw her acceptance into the artists’ residency at Medalta in Medicine Hat.

Brenda’s creations are based on natural elements that pre-date recorded history. Dragons, Mythology, and a touch of Art Nouveau are found in a variety of pieces that Brenda creates. She has both feet firmly planted in the ceramics world, one in funk-tional, the other in sculpture.

Brenda continues to expand her repertoire, testing new forms and ideas. She will continue to grow her new series “Jelly Bean Row Pots” based on the colourful houses from her Newfoundland origins. Nature inspired sculptures are always on the horizon of possibilities.
