Wendy Rix

YAAMA!!! Hello!!! My family are Yuwaalaraay mob from north west New South Wales, Australia, from a little town called Goodooga.  My parents moved to the city when I was a baby, but we spent all our childhood going home to family for holidays.

I find painting very therapeutic, calming and spiritual.  I believe this comes across to those who attend my workshops! I conduct private workshops, I work in educational settings with children and teachers, paint murals, design fabric, design tattoos, and love artist in residence opportunities. I am also an RN, specialising in community nursing, and currently studying a Bachelor of Dementia Care through UTAS. I have been a single parent for many years, and understand the challenges of financial difficulties, losing hope, overcoming obstacles and chasing dreams and I love to inspire others to do the same. Now my children are grown, but I will always be mumma.

I paint in contemporary indigenous style, about experiences and circumstances relevant to today, although the themes can translate across ages, cultures and time. Workshops are about creating your own story, your family story and I believe we all are important and special, and that our lives are better when we have God in them. I like to paint stories, yours and mine, and I hope to connect with you via those stories. I also paint in response to music, the colours around me and the conversations I hear. What I feel, I paint. I love driving, travel, boots, my painting clothes, red wine and I have messy hair.  This is not a dating profile!
