Wendy Parkin

Art and nature are Wendy’s two great interests in life, so living on the slopes of a beautiful river valley amid a wealth of wildlife, she is never short of inspiration for painting and drawing.

Wendy came to the North East with her Fiance in 1981 and planned to stay for two years

Wendy’s career at the time was in childcare, which meant that she did time for developing an artistic career. It was not until Wendy’s youngest child was preparing to leave the nest that she took the opportunity to take another look at her creative side!

Wendy studied Fine Art degree at Sunderland University and once graduated she began her new career as a full time artist.
