Wendy Arnold was born in 1956 in New Zealand. She arrived in Perth in 1971. Pursuing a career in art she studied for 3 years at the West Australian Institute of Technology, majoring in painting and printmaking. Extensive travel overseas finally brought her back to Sydney to do a post graduate at Alexander Macke (now named College of Fine Arts).
After 13 years in the fashion industry with the label she helped create, ‘Studibaker Hawk’ – where she was responsible for their highly successful and memorable textile designs – she retired and began to pursue her greater love, painting.
She has exhibited continuously for the last six years with her last four exhibitions at Rushcutters Bay Gallery selling out. There is a cult following growing for her work and word of an impending exhibition creates a theatre of it’s own.
Her work is in many Private and Corporate collections both in Australia and Overseas.
