Wenda is native to Seattle. She grew up near a lake, on a dirt road, and in the woods, where she learned to appreciate the intimate, fine details of nature. She played with frogs, built forts, found duck nests, and swam in the lake, even when it was raining.
Wenda received her first art lesson from her Father, at age nine. She was lucky enough to be encouraged by all her teachers in grade school and had great art teachers in the upper grades.
Wenda’s formal art training began at Highline and Green River Community Colleges in Graphic and Fine Arts. She received a BA in Education from Central Washington University. She taught young children for thirteen years, including at a Montessori school, and then an alternative school for gifted young children.
Wenda was lucky enough to work for four years at Edmark/Riverdeep Creative illustrating children stories for CDs and the Internet.
