Wendy Lynne Rinehart
Wendy Lynne Rinehart a.o.c.a. is an Award Winning Doll artist who creates fantasy and portrait figures. Her latest awards were Judge’s Choice, People’s Choice and Best of Show for two ‘Steampunk’ doll competition entries at the 2014 CostumeCon held in Toronto.
She sculpts her figures using Polyclays, Soft Sculpture, Paperclay, gourds, and occasionally wire and leather. Reflecting a very personal sense of humour towards a maturing life and its resulting attitudes, her work is whimsical in nature and strives to evoke an emotional reaction from the viewer through the use of colour, texture and wonderfully intricate detail.
Often inspired by found objects or an idea that is then translated into a moment in time, Wendy will explore combinations of Medias to create a character that draws the observer into a fantasy voyage of their own creation.
She is an occasional online teacher as well as teaching in her own home.
