Wendy Fee is a Canadian watercolor artist currently residing in Bainsville, Ontario. Originally from Montreal, Wendy obtained an Executive MBA from Athabasca University in Alberta and a Postgraduate Diploma in Event Management from Fitzwilliam Institute in Dublin, Ireland. She had a successful career as a Senior Sales and Marketing Manager in the health care industry for many years before deciding to launch her own event planning business in 2009, Chain of Events, which she still operates today as President, Owner and Founder. As of 2013, she is excited to devote more of her time to her true passion of creating art and to be a part of the Montreal artist community.
Mainly self-taught, Wendy has been expressing herself artistically for over thirty years. Always interested in painting, she has taken many studio classes and workshops in Canada and the U.S. In 2010 Wendy was exposed to the work of watercolour artist Alvaro Castagnet in Europe and came home transformed. Influenced by Alvaro’s strong, expressive and colorful style she immediately embraced his “painting with passion – beyond technique” approach to watercolor. Wendy since has had the opportunity to paint with Alvaro on two occasions and continues to be inspired by his approach and insight.
Wendy paints because it makes her happy. Through her paintings, she shares a passion for color, fashion, beauty and simply her joy of life. Wendy is drawn to watercolor as a medium because it has a mind of its own. She works experimentally with a spontaneous, undisciplined imagination. She has a high tolerance for uncertainty and has an overriding willingness to embrace mistakes and surprises along the way. The unique, whimsical, dreamlike watercolor art that Wendy creates can largely be attributed to her ‘no fear-no rules’ attitude; which she has been known to employ in her everyday life as well.
With an innate desire to learn Wendy is currently experimenting in fluid acrylics, and mediums, including mixed-media collage elements as well. Wendy’s artwork has been exhibited at the Griffintown Art Gallery.
