Wendie Donabie


Throughout her life, Wendie Donabie has pursued some form of creative expression – studying piano, trying out various artistic crafts as a child, to drawing and painting as an adult.

Her love for nature and concern for the planet informs her paintings. “Inspiration can come at any time, so I always have my phone or a camera with me in case something says, paint me.”

Working in acrylic, oil, Chinese Ink, and watercolour, Wendie’s paintings often incorporate various mediums and objects to create textural interest and a wee bit of magic. In part self-taught, she also completed courses at Haliburton School of the Art and received training with renowned Canadian artist, Pat Fairhead, R.C.A..
