Du Plessis, Wendy

Wendy du Plessis was born in Cape Town and lives on a smallholding near the Mother City with her family, including 5 horses, 2 great danes, a daschund and a cat.

Her father's love of art rubbed off on her and she has been painting since an early age.  Wendy is completely self-taught.  She started off in oils and then changed to pastels which she finds perfect for painting animals.

Years of riding and working with horses has given her the knowledge of anatomy and muscle movement which shows in her paintings and sculptures.

She sold her first painting of a racehorse to Gary Player.

Wendy aims to capture each animals unique personality and she feels that her interest and knowledge of the subject enables her to do this.  Wendy believes that the ability to paint is within all of us.

Never taking any formal training in art, Wendy's talent is brought to life through the research she does for each subject.  She is continually researching new and better ways to approach a new painting.
