Wendy is a graduate from the Ontario College of Art and Design and following her father, the late Ron Lockhart, emerged into an exciting career in graphic design and art direction. Her work has encompassed designing annual reports and logos, to art direction and design for CP Hotels.
In 2003, she needed a change and decided to try oil painting. It was a life changing decision; one that she believes has brought her full circle to the little girl who wanted to be 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. Painting in a realist impressionist style she is working on developing her paintings with a concentration on values and colour rather than detail.
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. “To paint outdoors the artist truly learns to be an artist. It’s like seeing for the first time, the infinite amount of colours and values you don’t get from photography.”
With this new found love, Wendy has started to travel and last summer spent 5 weeks painting and traveling through Italy and France. This summer she plans to paint in Colorado, Georgian Bay and at length at the Mill Pond Studio. So drop by for a visit and share in her joy of being an artist.
