Wendy is a practicing artist and registered clinical arts therapist who works alongside Whitecliffe's arts therapy students, to realise their potential in creative therapeutic practice. Wendy also enjoys working with groups and individuals in the community and believes that engagement in arts therapy is an opportunity to better know your-self and to stretch and grow from the inside out. Wendy's approach is playful, person-centred and multi modal, establishing a safe and supportive environment that is open to the art making experience and all its possibilities.


Wendy holds a Bachelor of Fine Arts and a Master of Arts in Arts Therapy. She draws from experience working across diverse environments and creative spaces including the wellness sector, information communication technology (ICT), mental health and disability, the arts, rehabilitation and recovery, youth, older adults and complex needs.
