Mango Smile Studio is located in Sidney, B.C., where Wendy Picken holds workshops
and drawing classes and works on her paintings. Seasonal art cards (perfect for Christmas!),
prints and books of her work are available.

‘Finger painting without the paint’ is how artist Wendy Picken describes the mixed medium
technique she has developed since 1988. With her fingertips, she combines Stabilo crayon,
pastel, china marker and wax polish on paper. “There are no rules except to trust and follow
your heart.”

‘Art from and for the heart,’ Wendy Picken’s work is a colourful celebration of nature’s
seasons of love and life.
