Wendy Picken

Wendy Picken

Wendy is a local Sidney artist and author. Her distinctive style conveys a sense of JOY through the use of strong colour and images taken from the natural world. She works with Stabilo crayon, chalk, pastel and china markers on paper.

Applying wax polish gives each drawing a vibrancy which fills her still lives with movement and texture. She has been developing this technique since 1998. In the Spring of 2022 Wendy will release her second children’s book- ‘Rainbees & Honeybows’.
