As a self-taught artist, I’ve followed a winding path to arrive at my true calling. From owning a women’s clothing business to restoring historic homes to practicing cosmetic tattooing, my experiences in the creative industries have all led me to this moment.
In 2019, I took a break from my successful cosmetic tattooing business and rediscovered my love of nature. I picked up a paintbrush for the first time and haven’t looked back since. My art is an extension of my passion for the natural world and my desire to promote positivity, wellbeing and vitality.
Whether I’m working in a realistic style or using lots of texture to create abstract pieces, my goal is always the same: to capture the beauty and magic of our world and bring it into people’s homes. My current series of paintings, "Vessels", explores how we’ve used nature’s resources throughout history to create useful products and enhance our lives.
Through my art, I seek to inspire joy, wonder, and meaningfulness. I’m constantly experimenting with different mediums to capture the organic forms, textures, and fragility of the natural world. My hope is that my art brings a sense of peace and connection to all 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.
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.
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
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.
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.
