Wendy’s Words : Nurturing Resourceful Resilient
Wendy’s Story :
I am an interdisciplinary visual artist, designer, writer and food stylist.
Balancing a life of art and food for over twenty years; I have cooked and catered across Canada and internationally, food styled for film and television and developed an art practice that encompasses visual art, curatorial projects, performance, film and writing.
I have exhibited since the mid-90s in a variety of contexts ranging from galleries to storefront windows, industrial spaces to parks.
My design practice traces a similar orbit to my artistic impulses as I explore the potential inherent within found materials and reclaimed objects.
Encompassing ideas of ecology, rejuvenation and repurposing, I integrate a wide variety of materials in creating design pieces (furniture and handmade works) that have the feel of contemporary antiques; pieces that are rustic, warm and refined.
I am an Associate of the Ontario College of Art and hold a B.A. in History from the University of Western Ontario.
