Wendy was raised in rural Manitoba where nature and wildlife were close at hand. Her inspiration comes from these memories. She paints a variety of subjects and settings as each offers the opportunity to use the paint in different ways. References are gathered from photographs taken on hikes, holidays and drives in the country.
Wendy’s artwork is detailed, drawing attention to the colours, reflections and movement that are a part of each composition. Her acrylics express the mood of the moment, whether it is a misty morning along a shoreline or a vibrant fall display of golden aspens. “Painting a variety of subjects is an opportunity to share with others the enjoyment that I feel for each setting and to challenge me to grow my artistic skills.”
