About Me

Well hi there! I'm so happy you're here. My name is Brenna and if you haven't already guessed, I'm the artist behind Brenna Doodles! I started doodling simply as a hobby that I'd come home to after work. In March, I was placed on furlough from my full time job and, in an effort to pass the time, started ramping up my doods. I'm so glad you found me and I hope my work resonates with you in some small way. 

A little about me! I was born and raised in the California Bay Area. I went to school at Cal Poly San Luis Obispo where I got my BS in Recreation, Parks and Tourism (no, I did not want to be a park ranger...). After graduation, I moved home and got a job in Marketing in San Francisco. For about three years I commuted with my Dad from our home on the Peninsula to work in San Francisco (long live #CommutingWithCam). I moved up to San Francisco in July of this year and am currently living my doodle-filled, quarantined life in the city. 

Because I've never written a bio before, here's a list of some of my favorite things: 

  • Haribo gummy bears 
  • Parks & Recreation 
  • Staying in on Friday nights 
  • Blankets 
  • Sleeping in socks
  • Painting my nails 
  • Procrastinating 
  • Fort Point Westfalia
  • My parents and sisters  
  • California burritos 
  • Tom Howell
  • Fresh cut flowers
  • Pops of color!! 
  • The Parent Trap (1998)
  • The Obamas 
  • Pod Save America
  • The Bachelor 
  • Root beer floats 
  • Peach High Noon 
  • Arnold Palmers 
  • Tiny ice cubes
  • Trader Joe's Hatch Green Chile Mac 'n Cheese
  • Taylor Swift 
  • My full time job + co-workers 
  • My Favorite Murder 
  • Big, baggy sweatpants 

Thank you for supporting my little side hustle!
