Wendy Quirt lives in Ottawa, Ontario. She travels coast to coast, studying animals in their natural setting. Back in the studio, she composes ideas for paintings from photos and experiences gathered in the field. She feels both inspired and compelled to capture the strength and fragility of nature in her art. Her careful attention to the animal and its environment, and patience in the painting process creates a lifelike quality in her paintings.
Her work has shown internationally in prestigious wildlife shows such as Art of the Animal Kingdom. An art teacher to all ages, she happily shares tips of the painting process in workshops.
Wendy is often asked to talk about her artistic journey and experiences with wildlife. She hopes to teach her own children and others about the beauty and value of nature through her art and discussions of life outdoors.
