Wendy began exploring textiles at 8 years old and has 40-plus years of experience creating one of a kind textile art and weaves anything from lightweight meditation and prayer shawls to large heavy wall sculptures. She weaves strips of fabric, copper, wool, cotton thread, silk; incorporates glass, beads, handmade felt; and uses seen and unseen hanging systems of iron or wood. Her art encompasses a myriad of feelings, is beautiful, comfortable, durable, and leaves the viewer with an uncommon reminder of the variety in life.
Wendy is also known as a wellness coach supporting people to live healthier happier lives. In her practice, Gently Well, she teaches meditation, various ways to approach food, eating habits and weight issues, stress management skills, and much more. For coaching, visit: www.gentlywell.com.
