About Wendy

About Wendy

I am very interested in community engagement in art, the ecology, and political themes. I work as an experimental painter and am currently working with Colin Gooch Technical Director and Mike Clowes Technical Manager Resene Paints. I am pushing the boundary of paint and also looking at archival properties of using industrial coatings in fine art.
