Artwork




I like to create whimsical illustrations and paintings. I draw chickens who drink wine, dogs who love cheese, elephants who ballet dance with longhorn steer, and cats who dream of far off adventures. I also enjoy drawing streets and towns. If you are local to Sacramento, you may be familiar with my work for the Fair Oaks Chicken Festival. I believe that life needs colorful, fun art. We all only have so many walls, so I also believe that art should be useful. This is why my designs are available on all kinds of items for your life and home such as cutting boards, kitchen towels, magnets, drink insulating sleeves, coasters, garden signs, larger signs, workout and golfing towels, and in case you do still have space on your walls, prints, posters, and originals!

Background




I like to draw things that make me happy, and I love to share these happy illustrations and paintings with others! Art is an amazing element in life, and my goal is to bring joy to your environment through my creations. I grew up in the Bay Area of California, and have also lived in Washington near Seattle, and in New Orleans, Louisiana. Each of these places has colorful cultures and landscapes, and I believe that my experiences while living there help to influence my art.  

When I was little, the illustrations in children’s books and the comic strips in the Sunday newspaper were my favorite things to study. I would practice drawing the way those artists did, and when I couldn’t do something the way they did, I would come up with my own versions. I love colors, lots of detail, and contrast. My whimsical Chickens have been evolving since early 2000, and I sold many many of my Alligator Boards in a shop on Magazine Street during my time in New Orleans between 2003 and 2007.  I began Wendy’s Joy Art Delights in 2007 and have enjoyed bringing my designs to a larger stage through Etsy. My new goals include growing my wholesale catalog and also art licensing. I live in Roseville, California with my husband, Damon, our daughter, Athena, and our rescue dog, Cody.
