Artist Brenda Mallory is an eco-conscious, recycler and composter who often works with found materials. Using cloth scraps from commercially sewn products, her mixed media work is often made from duplicating forms and repetitive processes, transforming materials that have been deemed worthless into thought-provoking and beautiful.

Mallory’s exhibition history includes solo shows at fine arts venues including Upfor Gallery and the Portland International Airport. She is a 2015 Eiteljorg Contemporary Art Fellow and in 2013 was a resident in Sculpture at Anderson Ranch Arts Center in Colorado. She holds a BA in Linguistics from UCLA and received her BFA from the Pacific Northwest College of Art.
