Painting allows Wendy to get into a flow state, where time has no meaning and she gets lost. She experiments with textures and techniques and uses various tools, palette knives, fingers, splattering and more. Many paintings come to her intuitively and the process can occur in 1 very productive session or several sessions over the course of months before she is completely happy, preferring to create in the brightest of colours to benefit from the amazing energy that this produces.

Her childhood was one of being outdoors and her connection to nature is evident in her paintings especially her love for the power, energy and calmness of the ocean. She is inspired to add positivity to the world through her art and hopes it stirs your emotions, stimulates your senses and takes your imagination somewhere magical. In addition she loves to add hidden messages and meaning to the art often through the title for those that appreciate it and would like to take into their own lives.

Works have been collected all over Australia and now in America. She is represented in several public exhibitions in South Australia. It is the energy, vibrancy and warmth the paintings bring to people's homes and lives that attracts buyers.
