Wendy Jelbert studied sculpture, abstract art, pottery and printmaking at Southampton College of Art. She is a teacher and professional artist who works in pastels, oils, acrylics, inks and watercolours. She enjoys experimenting with different ways of using mixed media and texture and her sometimes unconventional methods often produce surprising and original results. She lives near Andover in Hampshire, and has three children, two of whom are professional painters. Galleries in Southampton, London, Brighton, Cornwall and Oxford regularly exhibit her work, and she has had a number of articles published in the Leisure Painter magazine. Wendy has written nine art books and has also made three videos - on mixed media, painting gardens and line and wash.
