Gwenda Branjerdporn is an artist based in Brisbane, Australia. In her portfolio, Gwenda creates expressive landscape, figure, and abstract paintings in a soft and peaceful colour palette.

It’s interesting to see how Gwenda approaches traditional art in various media including watercolour and acrylic paint. The artist tends to focus on a pastel colour palette that heightens the dreamy, ethereal quality of her images, whether they’re purely abstract, or landscape-based. Some of the artist’s works are figurative, while some take a more symbolic approach. There’s an earnest quality to all of these images that makes even the most abstracted compositions feel approachable, and even familiar.

Stylistically, Gwenda’s paintings veer toward a childlike, impressionist tone that always seems to convey the artist’s feelings and reactions toward a scene, rather than the specific details.
