The Healing Place 24 x 30, by Wendy Dudley

Wendy Dudley paints from her heart, exploring the world of spirit.  While Wendy paints a variety of subjects, she is drawn to intuitive art, opening the door to endless imagination. Her work is full of joy, healing, and dreamscapes. “I like to think my art speaks to the journey from the head to the heart.” Her paintings are in private collections throughout North America. She has been an artist-in-residence, and held solo shows. 

Wendy is a Mesa carrier, and lives in ceremony with all Beings. Her painted frame drums are played around the world, their drumbeats connected to the song lines.

Bold. Vibrant. Spiritual. Whether it be clouds scurrying across a sky, a donkey ambling through the desert, or a mystical bear,  Wendy Dudley paints the dance of life. Each step and spin is part of the journey. 

Wendy views each canvas as a gateway to beyond, inviting the viewer to become part of the unfolding story. She has a deep connection to wildlife, sharing meadowland breezes, woodland trails, and hilltop views with the birds and animals near her home in the foothills of Alberta, southwest of Calgary.

A self-taught artist, Wendy Dudley is also an award-winning journalist and photographer, and a published author and illustrator. It’s always about the story, she says, whether captured in paint, words or with a camera.

Wendy’s illustrated book (Don’t Name the Ducks and Other Truths About Life in the Country) has been read by adults and children around the world, and her writing and photography have appeared in various publications throughout North America.
