About Wendy Picken

Wendy Picken’s Mango Smile Studio is located in Sidney, B.C., where she creates her paintings, offers workshops and private and group classes. She produces seasonal art cards, prints, and has written and illustrated two books. The flower-filled garden surrounding her studio often provides inspiration for her whimsical, vibrant images.

“Finger painting without the paint” is how Wendy 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. “Art from and for the heart”, Wendy’s work is a colourful celebration of nature’s seasons of love and life.

Mango Smile Studio is open Saturday – Tuesday, 11 am – 4 pm.
