A life-long artist, Wendy also studied and worked as a dancer, vocalist, actor and writer. Now yoga has replaced dance, she still sings in choirs and as a soloist, and she writes grant proposals as the president of the board of a non-profit vocal arts choir. While all of these disciplines inform everything she does, visual art has emerged as her field, the place that commands the majority of her time and energy.
Wendy received her BFA degree in studio art Summa Cum Laude from Hunter College, City University of New York, and spent several years studying at the Art Students League in NYC. Bringing all of this to Colorado, she foundedFutureSelf: Youth Discovering Success Through Art, serving youth at-risk with transformative arts-based workshops. She was the organization’s executive director for eight years. While there, she developed creativity training for adults, eventually leaving the non-profit to lead such programs for organizations nationwide, which she enjoys doing to this day.
After years of providing opportunities for others to make art, Wendy came back to her own art-making practice full time in 2014. Since then she has exhibited her work regularly, creating award-winning monolithic installations and intimate gallery shows featuring figurative sculpture made with unconventional materials.
Wendy believes that art gets us in touch with ourselves and others, and her purpose is to create and share work that inspires the human spirit, awakening humanity to the rapture of being alive.
