Featured Artist, July 2018; Wendy Roberts

Wendy Roberts is inspired by the stunning mountains, beaches, wildlife, and underwater world of Hawaii. Many of her award-winning oil paintings have depicted Hawaii’s green, natural spaces which enchant residents and visitors alike.

Among the beauty of the lush forests, sheer mountains, and gorgeous beaches of the windward side, Wendy has found a deep sense of peace and inspiration. Her connection to the land, the ocean, and their natural inhabitants motivates her to capture and share this breathtaking scenery with an emphasis on color and texture. She is also very interested in depicting people in interesting situations. The emotions and activities of people convey a complex story and creates art that fills a different display role, with diverse challenges which are exciting. Thus, she is equally interested in people and landscapes, opting for a balance of realism and painterly strokes that suits the particular piece.
