Wendy is a self-taught artist, whose unconventional journey led her to discover her true calling. Her diverse experiences in the creative industries, ranging from owning a women's clothing business to restoring historic homes and practicing cosmetic tattooing, have collectively shaped her artistic path.
In 2019, Wendy took a sabbatical from her cosmetic tattooing business, during which she rekindled her deep affinity for nature. This transformative period marked the inception of her artistry, as she first picked up a paintbrush, and she has never looked back since.
Wendy's artistic expression is an embodiment of her profound passion for the natural world and her commitment to promoting positivity, well-being, and vitality. Whether she engages in a realistic style or delves into abstract pieces with abundant texture, Wendy's central objective remains consistent: to capture the enchanting beauty and magic of our world and introduce it into people's homes.
Through her art, Wendy aspires to evoke joy, wonder, and a profound sense of meaningfulness. Her creative exploration knows no bounds, as she constantly experiments with various mediums to encapsulate the organic forms, textures, and fragility of the natural world. Wendy's ultimate aspiration is that her art instils a sense of serenity and connection in all those who encounter it.

I visited Wendy's studio last as part of the Noosa Open Studios trail and
purchased a set of her beautiful cards. Just as I was about to leave her
magnificent painting 'Gum Nut Alley' caught my eye. It is so beautiful, calming
and serene, I thought I just had to have it. Luckily, my husband loves it too. It
takes quite a large wall space and we look at it every night when relaxing. It fits
so well in our house that is surrounded by greenery and wide vistas.
I saw some of Wendy's art on line and was very taken with it. We bought The
Shallow Shoal & Rock and Shoal from Wendy which are marine inspired ink on
aluminum panel pieces. Wendy got them framed for us and they look
spectacular. I see these pieces daily and they always give me great joy. I love the
vibrant colours and the fine detail. Wendy is a talented artist across a variety of
mediums, she is a pleasure to deal with - very helpful. Look forward to seeing
and maybe owning more of her beautiful work.
Look at the incredible painting of our Chocolate Lab, Byron, by Wendy. When we first caught a glimpse of it we thought it was a photograph! The detail is incredible. Over the moon with it.
I have now two of Wendy's pieces, one from her exquisite floral collection, the
detail, the brush strokes, it is so lifelike I almost attempt to smell the painting
expecting a floral scent to waft pass. My next piece is completely different as
Wendy explores a new style, more eclectic and abstract which I also love for the
boldness and the colours. Amazing art, well priced with a bit of Wendy herself in
each one. Thank you Wendy.
We are thrilled to have Archie hanging in our homes and we get heaps of comments from our visitors of what great likeness and they initially think it’s a photo and not a painting of Archie
