About Wendy Meeres
Wendy Meeres was born and raised in Red Deer, Alberta. Art has always played an important role in her life. Her work has focused on pottery, painting and lampwork glass beads.
Her pottery was primarily raku. She did thrown and sculptural works that sold in Western Canada. In 2011 she made a choice to move away from the pottery and focus on the painting and glass bead making. Her glass beads are colourful bits of glass that are then made into jewelry or sold as single beads. Her paintings are works in water-based media, she combines printmaking and image transfers of her own photographs. The paintings may be mixed media or watercolour.
Her current work is often inspired by her travels and the streets of Central Alberta. She has always been drawn the details of historical buildings wherever she goes. Newer structures lack the character and don’t seem to be built to last the test of time. Canada is such a new country that we need to preserve the historical buildings we have.
Wendy’s work is currently on display as part of the exhibit, Landmarks: A Sense of Place.
