Brenda Pearson

Brenda Pearson is from Yarrabah and Hopevale, in Tropical North Queensland, Australia. She now lives in Cairns. Brenda has a great interest in observing the natural environment. She wants to help conserve the beautiful wildlife found in this part of Australia.

In 1996, Brenda went on a journey, recording what she saw, drawing and painting pictures, and writing stories about her travels and about the environment and the wildlife she saw. “Travel to the Bushland” is the story of her travels. Brenda uses her creativity to produce stunning designs in her artwork, inspired by the countryside and wildlife that she loves.

Her desire is that her book will be a learning tool for all ages, so that people can read Aboriginal cultural stories.
