Wendy H. Wilkins became a professional artist in 2013 after a successful career in marketing and finance.  She earned her MBA from UNC-Chapel Hill and is the owner of WHW Studios, a giftware company featuring her vibrant nature-inspired art.

With a boundless imagination that refuses to sit quietly in the background, this left-handed daydreamer creates bold and colorful worlds on canvas and in novels.  She has won numerous awards and her work is available in galleries and shops.  Wendy resides in Durham, NC and relaxes by sipping lattes at outdoor cafes, curling up with a good book, or hiking in the mountains.
