"While we may all not be full time painters or sculptures, we can all be more creative doctors, lawyers, sales people, parents etc. 
Creativity can help us reduces stress and allow us to live more joyful and productive lives.  

I have painted, drawn and taken photos all of my life.  I am a member of IATSE the Art Directors Guild for Screen and Television. 
I attended Art Center College of Design and I hold a BA in Art and Literature from Antioch Seattle. 
In my watercolor creativity workshops I call on my experience as a set designer and yoga instructor 
to set the scene for others to relax and unleash their creativity. 

I moved to Redmond just over year ago from Vashon Island.  I am truly enjoying all the art and diverse culture on the Eastside." 

"Watercolors with Wendra”  - Cultivating Creative Confidence.
