Wendy began making mosaic tiles from home from her garden in the early years of settling in Cornwall with her daughter.
'I liked how the tiles and paving could change along with the weather,wet and dry and could equally be used to great effect decoratively, in an interior space'
Having always been a gatherer, reluctant to part with shards of crockery collected locally. Wendy found great inspiration during her travels to Mexico, Spain, Portugal and Morocco. She identified with the element of the haphazard, in using broken china and found objects to create something unique and so her tiles were born.
Her use of cement and traditonal cobbing embodies an interest in the method of rhythmic placement. The grey grounding a reflection of the many greys from the ever changing sky,soft sea mist, granite stone and scantle roofing that surrounds her home in Cornwall.
'A backdrop of sea provides the subject matter
...boats tossed about in all seas....
