Artist: Wendy Hocking


I was born a creative under the sign of Pisces.  I have always dabbled and I love how it makes me feel. Daily I scour the internet for ideas, knowledge, techniques, inspiration. I absolutely get lost in the vibrancy of the colours and watching the paint blend and move on the canvas and the whole process, which ever of the many that I use.

I enjoy using non traditional methods and am continually experimenting with various tools and paint applications.

Alot of my paintings come to me intuitively, I sometimes let myself be guided as I am an empath and can "feel" very deeply all that goes on around me.  Sometime it is also a memory of something I have seen or somewhere I have been to which inspires me to paint

Painting always generates energy and lifts my mood and I hope you the viewer can see or feel this communicated to you.  As a child growing up in a remote area of South Australia I was free to roam and explore.  I love nature and all its colours and unique shapes.  I am inspired by sunsets, birds, flowers, the sky, the beach and much more.

It is the warmth, energy and joy of my work which draws people to make a piece a permanent fixture of their space. 

Love and Light xx
