Wendy Liz is a versatile artist who loves to paint. She was inspired by her sister, who was an artist and had her own gallery in Nashville, TN. Wendy resides in Sarasota, FL. She enjoys painting realism, abstracts, and other types of art; however, she is especially fond of painting fun and expressive animals, which she calls Krazy Kolorful Kreatures.
Wendy studied art at the Ringling College of Art and Design. She also studied painting with Lois Carson at Suncoast Technical College (formerly Sarasota County Technical Institute), and later with Sarasota artist and teacher, Bill Jerdon. She began working in acrylic but soon developed a love for oil, which became her favorite medium.
Wendy has painted various commissioned works that are exhibited in homes around the country. She welcomes commissions, which have included realistic portraits as well as large abstracts that cover entire walls. Her original art is available; however, giclees and prints are also available as a more affordable option. Giclees are fine art prints on canvas, and prints are fine art prints on high-quality paper—both using the latest technology printing techniques.
Wendy’s creative ideas for art are based on her experiences with the people and places she encounters throughout her life including children, grandchildren, family, and friends, as well as destinations and new adventures.
When I began painting, I looked at the world in a different context. I studied faces, children, animals, trees, grass, flowers, and even water differently than I once did. Being able to communicate on canvas, as I do, is a wonderful creative outlet. There are so many beautiful things around me in everyday life to portray to the world as I see them. Whether it's a portrait, realism, animals, or an abstract, I strive to express my feelings, energy, and emotions.
