All the beauty of life is made up of Light and Shadow

 

 

       Wendy Wells-Bailey is one of a group of artists who graduated from the London Art Academy who were influenced by the Fauvists, Cubists, and Futurists of the early 20th century.  These artists, Matisse, Derain, Braque, Duffy, among others created exciting and vibrantly colored works of art. 

Wendy has been further influenced by Art Deco artists such as Tamara de Lempicka, and the Arts & Crafts Movement architects Mary Jane Colter and Frank Lloyd Wright.  Wendy attended the Frank Lloyd Wright School of Architecture for a short time. 

The reworking of their style and color combined with her love for Meso-American and Southwest American art and culture has become her signature style.

Wendy began to publish her works as limited edition serigraphs and later took advantage of the newer method of giclée printing, quickly releasing thirty six pieces of her work
