UUCOB Art Show  – Opening Reception – December 12, 2021    Artist, Wendy Jewett

About the artist…

Wendy Jewett was born in  Providence, RI and now calls North Carolina home. She began painting at the young age of 63 and fell in love with watercolor.

Wendy’s lifelong interest in the natural world led to her
commitment to conservation art and her “Endangered Series”, with a focus on South African wildlife. 

Her “Endangered African Elephants” are very popular with collectors.

Wendy journeyed to South Africa in the winter of 2020 to observe, photograph, sketch, and explore the culture of this country. She hopes to return soon and continue this work.

Wendy is self- taught and has benefitted by taking workshops with nationally known artists that include Carol Carter, Ryan Fox and Dylan Scott Pierce.  Her style is representational and usually with a limited pallet of complementary colors, and her hope is that the viewer would like to “get to know “the subject.  She is currently working on portrait skills.

She has participated in several juried  exhibitions including the Nansemond Suffolk Art Show; Faces and Places of South Africa- a one woman show; Chowan Arts Council; Arts of the Pamlico where she was awarded the Frank K Rumley Textile Award 2018 for her watercolor batik “Roots”; Perquimans Arts League Member show- second place in Watercolor; and Dare Arts Council. Her work is in private collections across the US.
