Wendy is originally from Montreal, Canada, Wendy spent her childhood falling in love with California’s golden hillsides, sweeping vistas and majestic shorelines. Honoring the tradition of the early outdoor painters, she strives to convey the atmosphere, depth, and drama of the modern landscape. In both outdoor and studio works, she translates the scene in a true-to-site historical manner, imparting a sense of mood, place and time.

Exploring a layered approach with Acrylic, Wendy prefers to begin her works directly from life. Gathering her painting gear, she scouts for a unique composition and appealing viewpoint. Then there’s about two hours of precious light before the sun changes everything. Capturing that first impression on site is the essential part; then in her studio, she’ll continue to build depth into the work using layers of paint and transparent washes for subtle color changes.

A Cal State Fullerton graduate, Wendy pursued a twenty-year career in Illustration and Graphic Arts before immersing herself in painting full time. An Artist Member of the California Art Club, LPAPA, and SOCALPAPA, she also enjoys creative involvement in charitable groups such as the Artists Fund at Festival of Arts. Her works are in collections all over the nation, and she’s extremely honored to be returning in 2018 for her ninth year as an Exhibitor at the prestigious Laguna Beach Festival of Arts.

Wendy paints plein air anywhere she can, and then finishes the work in her studio in Laguna Niguel, California.
