Wendy Wilson

Wendy spent her childhood in suburban New Jersey where she spent hours exploring the forest adjacent to her home. She has taken pictures since she could hold a camera and worked in every medium available.

She loved visiting to MoMA in New York City and Spencer Gifts at the local mall. She also loved going to the movies at the theatre around the corner from her Saturday morning oil painting class, often watching the same film over and over again until her mother would pull her from the theater for dinnertime. In high school she set up her study halls so that she be in the darkroom for consecutive hours or in the art room designing posters for local bands.

Wendy attended Rhode Island School of Design, majoring in illustration while taking additional classes in filmmaking and graphic design. Her love of movies continued to grow thanks to the repertory cinemas of Providence, Rhode Island.

After graduation, Wendy worked in book, magazine and advertising design. Her illustrations have been appeared in The New Yorker, The New York Times Book Review and other publications

She currently works full time in television, as a Senior Art Director at Showtime Networks in New York City. Wendy has won multiple BDA awards for key art, branding and press kit design. She continues to take photographs, design websites and write in her spare time.
