Wendy Wahman

Artist's Statement

I seem to have come full-circle with my art, just drawing for myself again. No assignments, no one to please, no one looking over my shoulder, except maybe my dog. I call them, “Wenderings,” for the wandering way they flow from the pen, almost like they’re drawing themselves.
— Wendy Wahman, January, 2023
