About Wendy

My artwork is inspired by fairy tales, mythology, scary stories, holidays, and memories of a happy childhood that was filled with fun and imagination.

Originally from Chattanooga, Tennessee, I graduated from the Art Institute of Atlanta with an Associates Degree in Visual Communications. I started working during the dot-com boom of the ’90s as a graphic designer for a multimedia firm in Atlanta, Georgia, and later for a marketing firm and commercial web site in Charleston, South Carolina.

After a successful 20+ year career in graphic design, I now apply my design skills and experience to my exploration of sculpture, painting, and assemblage.

My sculptures are created with polymer clay which is light and durable. I spend hours forming the clay over an armature, then bake the piece. Finally, I paint the sculpture with acrylics and then seal it with a matte varnish. Where my paintings are concerned, I work in both oils and acrylics. I also enjoy assemblage, which is a “3-D collage” made by grouping found or unrelated objects.

I do not use molds, and I never reproduce a piece. This ensures that every work I create is absolutely one-of-a-kind.

I now live wherever the United States Air Force sends my husband, who is the love of my life. I love Jesus and want to be a better Christian. I also love chocolate, horror movies, theology, America, Halloween, Christmas, the Second Amendment, and European travel.
