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.
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.
