About me

Wendy Grace is an Australian abstract painter living in Melbourne. Her  practice centres on photography and painting creating works inspired by the  natural landscape. The  contours, textures and colours that reflect Nature's cycles of life and the process of growth and change are the foundations of her work. Wendy's  fascination for the patterns of nature can be seen in her organic, abstract compositions of translucent paint on paper and canvas.

Wendy's work has been included in group, and individual exhibitions in commercial and regional galleries in Australia and her work selected as a finalist in national competitions and prizes. She attended RMIT University where she attained her Bachelor of Fine Arts Honours Degree.  A collection of her paintings are currently on display in Melbourne at the office of Sinclair + May and at the Frankston Arts Centre, Frankston.
