(1937  -

Born near Antwerp, Belgium, Carl Brenders studied at the Fine Arts Academy in Antwerp and later at Berchem. His childhood fascination and deep respect for animals and the natural world is clearly evident in his highly detailed paintings that capture the extreme realism of birds, mammals and their natural habitat.

Carl’s wildlife images are first created from pencil sketches. It is from these sketches that his mixed-media paintings of watercolor and gouache are completed with a technique he has developed during the last 25 years.

Brenders has produced wildlife illustrations for more than 20 books in a series titled "The Secret Life of Animals". His paintings have been included in many prestigious exhibitions including the Leigh Yawkey Woodson Art Museum’s “Birds in Art” show, and his art is the subject of a book titled "Wildlife: The Nature Painting of Carl Brenders".

He divides his time between homes in Belgium and France.
