Wendy Bailey “I love the excitement of drawing and painting. I use a range of materials to create an effect – a sweep of charcoal, a lavish brush full of paint, a feather, stones or sticks – anything I have collected which will impart energy in my painting”. Strong form, structure, drawing, composition, colour and texture are the essential elements to Wendy’s paintings.
Using Oils, Acrylics, watercolours, charcoal and found objects as well as fingers, brushes and palate knives, Wendy works with a variety of tools and mediums to create her compelling vibrant art work.
Wendy’s inspiration is derived from her East Anglian surroundings where she lives, on the North Essex coast. Combined with her passion for the Suffolk Coastline and the vast sky filled Landscapes of East Anglia.
After studying Art and Drama at Colchester Institute, Wendy worked in the Theatre as a Scenic Artist. The experience of painting on a vast scale required for theatre scenery clearly still influences Wendy’s art.
