If you’ve gotten this far, you must want to know a little bit about me. I’ll admit, this part of my job is the hardest, because I honestly don’t know what to say about myself, but here’s my best shot.

My full name is Brenester May Eva Lucile Archibald-Ferris Sunley, but you can call me Brandie, everyone who knows me does.  I tell you my name because it is rare, like me.

Sometimes words fail me, but I find images and photography do not.

I love people. I love searching for the beauty that people may not see within themselves. I especially love making other people happy. I love honesty and the truth that is in plain sight. The camera allows me the opportunity to share my truth with others and often to bring joy to their lives.

I have been publicly showing my paintings, fabric sculpture and photography for over a decade and have received recognition from the University of Lethbridge, Master Photographers International Organization, as well as being one of the recipients of the Nikon “Moments We Live For” awards.

I am a risk-taker and I love learning. Whether its secret locations that are amazingly breathtaking or perhaps it’s just a new recipe for chocolate chip cookies or teaching my greyhounds a new trick, I am always on the lookout for new experiences and knowledge. And yes, I love Trivial Pursuit.

The longer I live, the more I realize what I still don’t know.
