Wendy Dixon-Whiley is a Visual & Street Artist working in drawing, painting and experimental practice. Known for her trademark playful yet mildly menacing style which incorporates illustrative design principles, Wendy describes her practice as “an internal visual universe unconfined by rules or restraints, my imagination is captured by the absurd, the silly and irreverent”.
For this exhibition Wendy is keeping with the ‘friendly monster’ cartoon-like style to particularly entertain children, but knows they are equally enjoyed by people of all ages! “These works are just a tiny cross section of the bizarre creatures that are born in my imagination; fun, quirky and unexpected – they exist to bring a smile or a puzzled expression to the face of the viewer and no more”.
Wendy trained in Visual Communication with a Post-Graduate in Marketing, and has recently completed a Master of Visual Art at the University of South Australia. Wendy exhibits regularly and has work in collections internationally.
These days Wendy can be found at her Hahndorf Academy studio space creating strange looking creatures to bring a smile to the face of even the most serious of viewers.
