Wendy’s creative style uses vibrant colors, with a creative look at the subject matter using whimsical and impressionistic techniques. She paints an array of subject matter from abstracts, still lives, nature and portraits. She travels throughout the world, and takes inspiration from the places she visits, trying to capture the passion of her vacations. She loves watercolor for the dance of color and paint on the paper and likes to introduce the excitement of unexpected color to add creativity and excitement to her work.
