Behind Wendy’s original paintings is a fascinating depth and luminosity. She has long been influenced by the Impressionist artist Claude Monet, whose mesmerising palette conveys strength and softness as one.
Her highly textured surfaces are created by layering oil, water-based paint and mixed media while including her signature dots - which represent Wendy and the people around her. The depth of colour, composition and form represent emotions and experiences.
Although abstract, each piece is very considered and the colours and shapes are meticulously planned long before she starts painting. The finishing touch sees the application of a glass-like resin coating, which enhances both the colour and deliberate imperfections of the piece.
Wendy says: “What I love about creating is that while my work has a clear meaning to me, my viewers and collectors all see something completely different.”
