Wendy was born in Hong Kong, Educated in the United States, Belgium and the United Kingdom. Art has always been at the heart of all Wendy’s career decisions. Her work explores elegance through the female form, pattern and shapes drawn from nature. The artist experiments with the qualities of the paint and the accidental textures produced.
Searching within this, she finds natural patterns that can become the basis of more developed decorative elements. The subtle colour harmonies combined with overlapping patterns and silhouettes, create contrasts; balanced between the abstract and the illusion.
Within the complexity of pattern, the hidden is revealed. By contrasting hard and soft shapes and tones, Wendy’s work has a fascinating diversity of female forms, and the endless variety of ways to portray them.
"My commercial experience has given me a broad scope of artistic expression. Painting in the traditional form gives me the opportunity to take my ideas further; experimenting with the juxtaposition of patterns and textures, to achieve a play of balance and to create rich and inviting paintings. I am inspired by Gustav Klimt and Tamara de Lempicka’s art," she said.
