011: Artist Wendy Sharpe – Be Daring, Go for it!

Wendy Sharpe artistArtist Wendy Sharpe talks about life, art, travel

Wendy Sharpe is a well-known international artist from Australia who travels the world. She’s won numerous awards for her paintings and drawings

On the podcast I had the privilege of talking with her as she generously shares frankly about her childhood growing up, not fitting in, the revelation in that and about  her career as a visual artist.

There are moments in our lives that jump out and lead us onto the path that we are meant to walk. Wendy talks about that a particular time when she realised that she could do it her way and do what she thinks, not what everyone else was doing.

If there is something you want to do, and you can, do it! – Wendy Sharpe

“Inspiration exists, but it has to find us working” – Picasso

Highlights:

 

  • The moment she realized she could let go of the shackles of fitting into the school she attended and do what she thinks

 

  • What’s important to her about her work.

 

  • The female protagonist in her art

 

  • Self-portraiture and what it’s really about

 

  • How to keep art simple and fresh

 

  • Travel

 

  • Taking risks and daring
