My full name is Wendy Jane Whittingham. I am a professional artist and have been selling my work for quite some time.
I currently reside in a quiet, but artsy south-western town located on the shores of Lake Ontario.
Not only did I excel in the visual arts as a child, but I loved to play with words. I wrote hundreds of stories and poems as I grew up, and imagined many more inside my head, some of which are still floating around in there and dying to get out!
Most days I feel like one of the luckiest people around. I love the creative process and the flexibility it offers me on a day-to-day basis. Mucking about and getting my hands dirty is just half the fun!
Humber College, Rexdale, Toronto: Diplomas in the Fine Art Program and also in Graphic Art & Design.
Sheridan College, Oakville: Certificate in Illustration
Burlington Art Centre and Dundas Valley School of Art: I have taken part in a multitude of courses and workshops over the past 30 years giving me an opportunity to experiment and explore different mediums, display my work and find my niche.
An outdoorsy person, I enjoy camping, swimming, boating, fishing and spending time with my family and pets.
Exploring & hiking are also favourite activities, and as far as I'm concerned, there's nothing better than a good old-fashioned picnic!
