Brenda has been making dolls since 1971 but it wasn't until 1981, when she moved her studios to Powys, Mid Wales, that she made her first series of Welsh costume dolls. They were sold in the museum at St. Fagans, the museum of Welsh History in Cardiff,
In 1989, her husband Roger and Brenda were invited to represent Wales at The World Showcase of Dolls held in the Epcot Center, Florida. Brenda was the only Welsh doll artist in attendance and promoted a limited edition of 50 Welsh dolls, especially created for the event.

Another of her interests is historical costume, and she has continued since then to expand her range of authentic handmade dolls. The Tudor kings and queens have always been very popular, and Brenda can count several Royal Palaces and historical venues as customers. Over the last ten years, since the advent of internet sales, she has enjoyed selling direct to collectors.
Brenda works from home, and the picturesque view from her studio window is an inspiration for all herwork.

In 2005 Brenda created a new range of Welsh dolls, again using her own original head scuptures and designs based on old prints and photographs.
