inspiration
the recollection of places wendy has been and how the landscape has affected her is the inspiration: coastal urban living and industrial concrete life intertwined. hidden metallic and roughness among the calming sea is reflected in her work. since boating on the jagged east coast, horizons have been captured in her mind and are ever changing with each journey that is taken.

about
sustainable series. 2017.
these eco-friendly works are layers of horizons, clouds and soft sea storms. being environmentally conscious has always been incorporated in wendy’s art. by using greenguard gold certified (for low chemical emissions UL 2818) acrylic paint in this series she continues this practice. wendy hopes the viewer takes a moment to imagine taking a step into each piece and visualize what the infinite horizon is today and will imminently be.
