Wendy Jones - Artist Profile

Brought up and educated in Cumbria and the Northeast, Wendy specialised in Art while studying in Durham to be a secondary school teacher. After gaining a Distinction, she spent a year in London at Camberwell School of Art.

After qualifying, Wendy soon moved into primary education, eventually becoming a Head Teacher and gaining a MA. Nevertheless she continued to paint and develop her distinctive styles.

Wendy has been influenced by patterns and designs in Middle Eastern and Oriental fabrics, and lately by the natural world, especially inland and coastal landscapes in northern Britain and north-west France. Her work shows an astonishing diversity of appearance and theme but often celebrates her love of colour - sometimes gentle, sometimes dramatic.

Wendy now lives in Darlington, County Durham, painting with acrylics, oils and mixed media, making linoprints and creating her Venetian style carnival masks. She has exhibited in the Northeast, the Midlands and Yorkshire; her work is in many private collections in Britain and abroad and she has undertaken several private commissions. In 2014, her body of work was voted "best in show" by an independent panel of artists at the Great North Art Show in Ripon Cathedral.

Formerly at Farfield Mill, Sedbergh, Cumbria, and then at Sedbury Hall Stables, near Richmond, North Yorkshire, Wendy now works from home in Darlington. Visitors are very welcome; phone 01325 355584 to get directions.
