About my work


Mary Oliver* said, Let me keep my mind on what matters…which is mostly standing still and learning to be astonished. I make my work to remind myself to stand still and to make space to be astonished.

I use different materials but especially love polymer clay for its responsiveness and flexibility.

I have lived in lots of places…cities, suburbs, the edge of the bush, the edge of the desert and at the edge of the Terai region in Nepal. It all comes out in my work.

I sell my some of my work here online and most at Trove Canberra, an artists collective that I love being a part of.

I teach because I love encouraging others to create.

*Mary Oliver in My Work is loving the World.



I get so much of my colour inspiration from walking in the bush near my house. You can see more about this in a short video here.



I find it really important to clear my mind and get in a process of flow. Here is some wonderful, serene music that helps me do that. The singing bowl draws me back to Nepal.

    Dear Wendy,

    how gorgeous your jewelry is and a fascinating read also. I live in Port Stephens NSW so am unable to attend your classes, do you sell your art on -line ?
    I particularly love your bright and happy figurines.
    Regards, Belinda

      Thank you so much for taking the time to comment Belinda. Very much appreciated. I am in the process of getting online sales organised although at this stage there won’t be any of those figures! To think I thought I didn’t have time when I made them. Now I seem to have even less time! I have a daughter in Newcastle and may get up there teaching one day. Are you happy to be on a mailing list if I do? Regarding sales: watch this space!
      Cheers, Wendy
