Flight of My Heart
As an Illustrator, drawing what I see was part of my training, tapping into my emotions and depicting them in paint has been a much longer journey. "Flight of my Heart" was created due to love and loss and is the best expression of emotion I have painted to date.
Swallowtail butterflies frequently visit our oriental lilacs when in bloom and apparently, although I did not know prior to painting this piece, "Gifts of the butterfly are eternal life of the soul through physical rebirth.", a lovely concept.

Wendy’s favourite forms of inspiration are still life, life drawing, and painting en plein air. She enjoys an alla prima approach to her art, prefers oil when painting and charcoal when drawing.
"“I love to draw anything live and hope to bring those strokes of life to my painting. I draw inspiration from everyday life and depict it in an impressionistic way.”"
