Wendy Winet, a New York City native, has drawn and painted since she was a young child. Winet graduated with a Bachelors of Fine Arts in Fashion Design from Pratt Institute, and worked in NYC as a clothing designer. She later moved west, settling in Ventura in 1977 in the very house she lives in today! She has planted a lush garden which serves as inspiration for many of her works. Winet is well known locally for her watercolor florals, but has recently enjoyed much success with her torn paper collages, either as abstracts or landscapes.
