Wendy describes herself as a plant-a-holic, viola player and an artist. She confesses that her preferred medium at present is ink, but admits, this could change at any time!
Wendy initially enrolled on a four week Botanical Art Summer School in 2011. This led to her enrolling on the beginners class in September 2011 and a year later the course tutor, Claire Adams, encouraged her to join the advanced class. Wendy says, "As a passionate gardener plants interested me; art interested me. I was hooked! My initial reason for looking for any course was a bout of bad depression. Claire Adams is an inspirational tutor, full of ideas, always encouraging. The class has always been friendly and supportive (which I am sure comes from the tutor) and also stimulating, as ideas can be bounced around. It is sociable, challenging, never dull. I like that we stretch the boundaries of botanical art".
