Wendy is a graduate of the Ontario College of Art and Design. After graduating and following the same career path as her father, the late Ron Lockhart, she began a successful career as a graphic designer in downtown Toronto.
In 2003, she needed a change and decided to try oil painting. It was a life changing decision; one that she believes brought her back to her earliest memories of the little girl who dreamed of being an artist. “Painting was the missing piece I had been searching for and I finally feel like the artist I’ve always wanted to be.”
What attracts Wendy to her subject is an exciting source of light and colour. “I try to capture that moment when the light will never quite be the same again.” Painting in a realist impressionist style she is working extensively on building her skills as a painter by concentrating on composition, colour and painting from life.
In the last few years, Wendy has become passionate for Plein Air painting; which is the art of painting in the open air. She finds it especially challenging but worth the hard work. “Painting outdoors, from life, is like seeing for the first time. I want to experience nature’s infinite beauty with not only my paint brush but with my whole being.”
Wendy’s artwork is in collections throughout Canada and the US. She has traveled and painted in the great outdoors of southern Ontario, Colorado and Italy to capture the challenging true effects of colour and light. Come visit her at her gallery nestled on her family’s 13 acres of pristine woodland property.
