Wendy Fountaine: Artist

Axminster, Devon

When I retired from Nursing & Teaching, I was persuaded to try my hand at pastel painting, (never having been able to draw a straight line before!)  I loved it, and to my amazement, with good tutorage, I was able to try my hand at acrylics & oils. 

Three years ago, Lisa Lyman and I started Axminster Artisans, an organisation whose aim was to promote local artists and crafters and to provide them with a showcase for their work.

I am now finding my ‘genre’, & although I like all aspects of the natural world, land and seascapes are my favourite subjects.

As a Complimentary Therapist, I find that Art & Healing compliment each other.
