I have known Brenda Wilkinson for the past 8 years. During that time, Brenda has led arts and crafts groups with the kids and adults at Treehouse ranging in age from the very young to the very old. Brenda brings the skills from her forming teaching career and role as a parent to bear as she patiently and playfully guides people to express themselves in many different ways. In addition, Brenda is incredibly talented and works hard to keep developing new wonderful projects which she generously shares. She is down to earth, resourceful, encouraging, supportive and fun. I highly recommend her!

I have known Brenda Wilkinson for over 2 years. She has volunteered to do art projects with kids at the Treehouse Community, an intergenerational community that supports families with kids who have experienced foster care. She has been so wonderful at engaging the kids and fostering their creativity with really interesting art projects. I have also been the recipient of some of her beautiful handmade creations, which have been wonderfully crafted with skill and care. Brenda is such a joy to be around. She has a very caring, patient, and supportive presence and she finds ways to spark your creativity and makes sure you are having fun while doing it!
