Artist Wendy Peters

Wendy Peters

Studio: Sunshine Coast, Queensland, Australia

I was born and raised in London, and moved with my husband to Australia in 2004. I am a self-taught artist and discovered my calling as a fine artist later in life.  However, my path to this point has always been connected to creative industries.  I have owned a women’s clothing business, restored historic country homes, and for 25 years had a business as a cosmetic tattoo artist. 

In 2021 I realised I had reached burnout from my business, I needed a break.  I took some time out and re-connected with my love of nature and its healing power.  It was during this period that I discovered my true passion, painting.

I create artworks using oil, cold wax, watercolour, acrylic and inks. I work on canvas, paper, wood and aluminium panels.  I take my inspiration from nature, its organic forms, texture, fragility I love to capture how light plays such a magical part, changing colour and depth which I try to show in my paintings. sometimes I paint in a realistic style other times abstract expressionism.

Scenes of nature are associated with positive mood, psychological wellbeing, meaningfulness and vitality.  My aim is to bring this feeling into your home through my art.
