With a heart to design and a good eye for color coordination, independent artist and University of Toledo alumna Brenda Price began drawing and painting at an early age.

Now, Price uses highly textured applications of color and original artwork in ceramics, sculptures, oils, acrylics and mixed media.

Her exhibit, “Shades of Blue,” is on display through Friday, Dec. 18, in the Catharine S. Eberly Center for Women, located in Tucker Hall on Main Campus. It can be seen daily from 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m.

Price said she gathers much of the inspiration for her works at times when her thoughts and ideas seem to come together effortlessly, like when she enjoys the early morning scenery.

In the 1990s, Bartz Viviano Flowers & Gifts in Toledo hired Price to design a line of ceramic angels and sculpture figurines titled “Brenda’s Designs.” In addition, Price was named Woman of the Month in Art from the city of Toledo in 2007.
