Well known for her profusion of bold and vibrant hues, oversized suns and moons, and shapes that are delineated with black or white outlines, Wendy Bissett Beaver (MaeisArt), invites the viewer to explore her artistic world.
Wendy works to develop paintings that speak to her and to others about the beauty that exists in the everyday world around her. She is fascinated by colour, shape and form and believes the imperfections and oddities in real life makes things much more interesting. She wants to capture the images you see and bring them to life in her own distinctive way.
Wendy prefers working with acrylics and ink and loves to spend hours on a painting capturing the uniqueness and details of the scene she is working on. Her commissioned works include specific scenes, and client’s homes. Wendy is a member of Art 1274 Hollis Co-Op and has had many solo shows in The Dart Gallery and also has a permanent exhibit at Seventy3 Fusion. She also ran and exhibited in The Cole Harbour Harvest Festival Art Gallery and Sale for the last 4 years. She is also Resident Artist at The Church of St. Andrew. At the moment Wendy is co-planning and co-organizing a number of visual, collective shows of Environmental Hope & Inspiration representing the need of raising awareness that any small change can help heal and protect our lands and oceans and give our children a future they deserve. Her paintings can be found in collections across Canada and internationally.
With energy filling the canvas with colour, Wendy’s bright and bold illustrative art has been inspired by the people and events that have shaped her and is filled with her love of family, friends, art, and the community she lives in.
Wendy lives and works in Dartmouth, Nova Scotia! “Hopefully my paintings invite viewers to explore and protect their neighbourhoods and make new visual discoveries for themselves!”
