Immersive Media Director, XR Artist
Hi! I'm Brenda,
a multimedia artist from Los Angeles, California. I enjoy creating with a wide variety of materials from watercolors to maxi pads and experimenting with emerging tech.
My interests include creating interactive art installations and exploring the potential of VR and AR. Ever since I was little, I fantasized about traveling to alternate universes, and with these new mediums that dream is now possible! My goal as an artist is to push the boundaries of new tech to create immersive experiences and recreate the feelings of awe and magic from my childhood fantasies.
Nevertheless, I'm still a true fine artist at heart with a passion for illustration and sculpting. I can always be caught doodling or molding my eraser putty into funky sea creatures.
Outside of my artistic pursuits, I'm also a programmer. Most of my work centers around developing games and building virtual concerts, but I am expanding my knowledge to include robotics and machine learning.
If you have any questions about my work or are interested in connecting please reach out! I'm always happy to collaborate or just chat about art and emerging tech.
