Wendy studied painting at Bournville School of Art and later trained to become a teacher at Westbourne College, Birmingham. Throughout that time she studied piano and singing at the Birmingham School of Music and became an L.R.A.M. for Pianoforte. After a career teaching in schools in Birmingham and Exmouth she later became Associate Adviser for Art for Devon, 1991-97 and Director of Courses at the Beaford Art Centre, 1995-97. Wendy lectured on the PGCE course for Secondary Art & Design at the Faculty of Education, University of Plymouth, 1999 to 2005."Most of my paintings have starting points derived from botanical and natural sources. I am constantly inspired by the range of form, detail and colour to be found in the structure of plants. Plants make an important contribution to our everyday life in varied forms including food, drink and medicines. They beautify our most momentous occasions of birth, marriage and death. They enrich our environment and the gardens we create.
