OPS Feature Artist
Inspiring conservation and awareness through art
OPS is often approached by artists around the world seeking to contribute to both OPS’ mission and public awareness about issues such as wildlife conservation, climate change, and protecting oceans and marine life.
In response, we are excited to launch our inaugural ‘OPS Feature Artist’ partnership program that will feature a different artist on a rotating basis. A few times a year, OPS will highlight the work of a profiled artist, showcasing his or her artwork to motivate and ignite the activist in each of us.
OPS believes in the power of art and imagery. By featuring the amazing artwork of ‘artivists’ around the globe, we are committed to inspiring individual action and fostering collaborative solutions to the Planet’s most pressing issues.
All media and artistic platforms are invited for consideration. Contact us to become the next OPS Feature Artist.
Wendy is a Montreal-based artist creating vibrant, colorful, attention-grabbing nature and conservation inspired canvases.
Wendy was born in Montreal, Quebec, Canada and began to paint at the age of two, alongside her artist-mother, Maggie.
She studied Fine Arts at John Abbott College in Montreal; Art Education at Concordia University in Montreal; and graduated in Printmaking from The Emily Carr College of Art & Design, Vancouver, B.C. She has exhibited in many group and solo shows throughout Canada.
Wendy is passionate about the Earth and environment and has an extreme love and compassion for all creatures, great and small. In particular, Wendy enjoys a relationship with the ocean, both above and below, as a competitive Stand-up-paddle boarder (SUP) and lover of all aquatic citizens. Wendy applies this passion not only to the way she moves through life but also to her colorful works – intended to open the eyes of her audience and to make them more sensitive and conscious towards endangered species, the climate crisis, and plastic pollution.
With the use of acrylic paints, colored pencils, pastels, paper, collage and words, she creates her canvases with vibrant colors and texture, and blends her stories and messages together with a playful and whimsical touch.
In 2007, Wendy partnered with her friend Sharon Auclair and together they created “Dung Beetle Design,” a small company promoting ecologically inspired products.
When not expressing her passions through art, Wendy is an enthusiastic SUP athlete and teacher/coach; a level-2 Certified Natural Fitness Trainer; a Certified Ashtanga Yoga Teacher, wife, and mother of 2 young-adult boys.
