Brenders was born near Antwerp, Belgium, and has drawn since childhood. He studied at the Fine Arts Academy in Antwerp and later at Berchem. He has produced wildlife illustrations for more that 20 books in a series entitled The Secret Life of Animals. Brenders has been included in the Leigh Yawkey Woodson Art Museum’s prestigious "Birds in Art" show regularly; he also exhibited in their 1987 "Wildlife in Art" show.
