As one of the founders of the Coast Cultural Alliance and coming from a family of artists herself, Wendy Charters has always appreciated the arts, the artists around her, and the many forms and styles their art takes.
In the last few years, after taking a workshop with one of our fine Sunshine Coast artists, Wendy discovered the joy of learning to paint what she loves – the diverse human, cultural & natural environment so abundant on the shores of our beautiful Salish Sea. Acrylic on canvas is her primary medium.
Born in to a European family of artists, Wendy has always appreciated artists & their arts. Such values led her to become a co-founder of the Coast Cultural Alliance 20 years ago. And in 2015 after taking a workshop with one our fine Sunshine Coast artists, Wendy picked up her own paintbrush.
“I live in awe of the diverse natural & cultural beauty of the Sunshine Coast, and I love to paint what moves me. This focus on what is right here in this moment & the next, as well as the joyful frustration of learning to translate it to paint keeps drawing me back to the canvas.”
