    What do you mean that you are a non-believer in the Emperor’s new clothes?

  7. Hi Wendy
    You emailed me to ask which draw I wanted to be for the OWOH event. I just read your up date, so I gues that solved the problem anyway….

  8. I was searching for viscosity prints on the web and found your site. I like your collograph prints very much. I don’t see your last name here. Are you simply known as Australian Wendy? :)

  9. Your sketch journal is wonderful!
    You have a great talent. I look forward to following your blog and ‘meeting’ up with you on the journal workshops.

  10. Hi. I like your website. It reminds me of Danny Gregory’s book “An Illustrated Life” It inspired me to create a facebook group where people share their illustrated journals in a supportive community for artists at all levels. Check it out here https://www.facebook.com/groups/sketchbookers and join if you like!

    My name is Emma and I work for Kuretake UK. I have been doing some research and came across your wonderful artwork. I am currently carrying out some research & would really appreciate it if you would be able to possibly help me?

    I just wondered what products of ours you have used or now use if any?
    what you thought of our products/ why you like them? and how they compared to our competitors?

    I look forward to hearing from you.

    Kind regards
