Hi! I’m Wendy Stephens and I’m a creative artist who works from my studio in Hertfordshire, UK.

I really love illustrating creepy women with a naughty glint in their eye, with a hint of realism and bright candy colours.

Although I studied illustration and graphic design at university I never really started any digital painting until I was on maternity leave in 2014. I used to draw and paint a lot as a little girl and teenager, but lost my way with art after starting my own graphic design business as I was just too damn busy!

Having my little girl gave me some thinking time to rediscover my love for art. I decided to specialise in one area, mainly painting women, so that I can uncover my style as organically as possible. Although I’m still working on it, I have friends who assure me that I do definitely have a style so that gives me the confidence to push forward.

The way I work:
I keep a notebook nearby and often write down phrases or ideas. I then usually open up Procreate on my ipad and start sketching. You can view all my recent sketches on instagram and finished pieces on etsy.

My inspirations: 
Lois Van Barle, Tara McPherson, Sarah Joncas, Charlie Bowater, Glenn Arthur, Kate O’Hara and about a million others.

I’m also a graphic designer and very proud mum to my little girl.

You can contact me on social media or by emailing me on hello(at)wendystephens.co.uk
