Painting, and the creative process, really, is part of Wendy. It’s innate in her world view, in her interactions with people and ingrained in her life. The world can be chaotic place and painting centers her and brings her to a place of serenity, calm and confidence. She brings that into her work with each brush stroke and careful color consideration, always trying to capture that certain unique something about someone to tell their story. When she’s not painting, she is off playing with (and being inspired by) her family and friends.
