Wendy Oppelt

oppeltWendy was born in Edmonton and has lived in Calgary, Vancouver, Adelaide, Australia and finally settled in Victoria, where she paints from her home studio. 

"My best teachers are nature and every piece of art I have ever looked at. I hope that my creations can hit an emotional chord in the viewer. Maybe it will remind them of a place or a memory, or maybe it just makes them feel happy. I think that's what life is all about, finding your equilibrium and feeling happy. That's what painting does for me."

Wendy continues to work in all mediums including chalk pastel, watercolour, acrylic and oil. Her clients describe her style as bold, colourful, inspirational, and joyous. "If a client tells me my paintings make them smile or feel joyous, I know I've captured exactly how I was feeling when I created it - it brings me pleasure knowing my art can make one feel good."
