Brenda Patricia Rodríguez Fernández was born in Mexico City in 1973. She studied Initiation in the Arts at Mexico’s National Institute of Fine Arts (INBA), later earning a degree in Art at the University of the Cloister of Sor Juana. In 1997, she studied with Master Luis Nishizawa, from whom she learned the handling of multiple painting techniques and procedures. In 2007, she began a Master’s degree in Social Responsibility at Anahuac University.
For more than 20 years, she has combined her passion for art with a career in social development, working in different sectors to design innovative strategies for social inclusion within communities.
From the moment she began to hold exhibitions, she decided on her professional name: Brenda R. Fernández.
Fernández’s artistic career has seen her exhibit work in various national and international venues in Mexico, Germany, France, Spain, England, Japan, Brussels, Austria, Italy, USA and Switzerland.
