Wendy was brought up in the UK and currently lives on the Northern Beaches.

She has a Diploma in Theatre Wardrobe from the Wimbeldon Art School where she learnt how to construct a variety of costumes for the stage.

Her sculptural practice began 20 years ago exploring ceramic forms. She then went on to study with Tom Bass. Her practice covers a range of media and she is always looking for ways to expand that practice.
