BioOriginally from Seattle, Wendy Ervin moved to Tennessee in 2003 with her family and retired from a career as a maternal-infant RN. She then pursued her passion for oil painting and has studied with a variety of master artists: Roger Dale Brown, Colley Whisson, Anne Blair Brown, Frank Baggett, Kevin Macpherson, and Marc Hanson. Wendy uses a limited palette of bright clean colors in her landscape, figurative, and cityscape paintings to capture the simplicity and serenity of everyday moments. She enjoys both studio work, using photographic and sketched references from travels in Europe, Mexico, and the US, as well as plein air painting in beautiful Tennessee. She has exhibited locally and nationally and serves on The Chestnut Group board.
