Wendy Wallace is a graduate of the University of Toronto and Sheridan College where she received a Bachelor of Arts with a Specialist in Visual Studies and Major in Art History. She received a scholarship from the Banff Centre’s School of Fine Arts where she completed an independent study session.

Wendy has been a part of the Muskoka area since childhood. She has been making and teaching art in this area since 1984. Wendy Wallace’s images centre on the impact of what she describes as “metaphorical and observational narrative.”

Her work explores the interrelationships among architecture, industry, people and nature and embodies a social consciousness. Wallace’s work connects with cultural narratives from the past and present in cities and towns. She draws upon similarities and differences that are relevant to society’s relationship with nature. Overall her work identifies the urban, rural and suburban landscape as cultural symbols.
