Wendy Cohen was born in Cape Town, South Africa and currently resides in Sydney, Australia. As Africa is in her blood, she is continually inspired by its rich and majestic culture. This is evident in her creative endeavours that investigate space, structural designs and architecture.

Her works, multilayered and thickly textured, are painted in bold and bright colours in order to create a positive ambience, as well as a playful and vibrant movement. They welcome the viewer into the canvas, as though participating in the creation of the canvas and bridging the gap between viewer and artwork.

Creating freedom of expression without categorization, Wendy wishes to transcend the disconnection between the painting and the viewer by inviting the viewer to see the authentic spatial power of the works, thus removing barriers and pre-conceived judgments.
