Biography

Brennen McElhaney was born in 1968 in Santa Barbara, California. He received a BFA from Rhode Island School of Design in 1990.

Brennen has had numerous one-man and group shows. His work is part of private and corporate collections throughout the United States and Europe.

In 2005, Brennen and his family, relocated from California to Asheville, North Carolina. He is currently working on a series of landscapes of Western North Carolina, and the surrounding areas.


About my Work

My paintings are a personal record, a visual journal of scenes that have caught my attention. My goal is to document the beauty that I see in the landscape, and create a record of my impression for others (and myself) to enjoy.

My artistic process relies heavily on observation that is to say I trust my eyes to "tell" me what to put on the canvas, how to paint it, what is important, and what is not.

Recurring subject matter in my landscapes are mountains, trees, rivers and lakes, cityscapes and architecture.

My current work is optimistic, reflecting a sense of contentment with my home in Western North Carolina and my appreciation of the breathtaking scenery of the Blue Ridge Mountains.
