Wendy Layne Artist

Wendy Layne resides in the Austin, Texas area. She is an artist and author of Beyond the Present, A Memoir by Wendy Layne. Wendy is a wife and mother of five children and grandmother of eight. Wendy describes her talent as a natural inherited ability and her artwork as passionately capturing the beautiful process of life into a timeless reminder to enjoy for a lifetime and pass on to future generations. While art has always been an important part of her life, raising a family was a priority and for many years she created in a small corner of her bedroom very late at night while her children slept. As her children have grown she now describes an overwhelming pull to create and her home now includes an almost 800 square foot art studio. She is experienced with oils, watercolor, pastels, colored pencils, acrylic, pen and ink, collage, and sculpting with clay. She has been working as a full time artist since September of 2014. In addition to creating portrait commissions, she has been exhibited in galleries across the United States and published in books and magazines. Wendy’s goal is to spend the rest of her life deeply immersed in the art community inspiring other artists and art enthusiast with her work.
