Wendy Brewer is a professional mosaic artist whose unique mixed-media mosaics have been exhibited in galleries in Oregon and Southern California.
Wendy is also a Soul-Centered Counselor and Healing Arts Facilitator.
Drawing on her experience as an artist and her background in Spiritual Psychology, Wendy values the creative process as a vehicle for healing and connecting with self.
She facilitates inspiring multi-media workshops that provoke self-discovery through creative play. She encourages participants to go beyond the inner critics voice, take risks, open to the freedom of expression, and stimulate a sense of new possibilities, while having a whole lot of fun!
Wendy enjoys working with people of all ages and abilities in a wide range of environments.
She has worked in hospital based Healing Art programs, providing healing art experiences to patients, their families, and hospital staff. She brings art classes to Senior Living Communities, and teaches in Children’s Art Programs.
Wendy receives much joy and gratification while immersing herself in the arts and contributing to the well-being of others.
I have always felt most at home and connected to my heart when immersed in the creative process. The experience of play, discovery, inspiration, aliveness, beauty, and reverence feeds my soul and brings me joy!
I’ve been working in clay and various art mediums for much of my life. In 1998 I discovered mosaics and find the limitless possibilities within the process delightful.
Most of my mosaics are like mixed-media collages.
I enjoy creating unique pieces to include in the overall mosaic using polymer clay, gold leaf, crystals, metal pieces, beads, specialty art glass, mirror pieces, and more.
I love to experiment with materials, learn new techniques, and to continually grow and expand artistically.
Every piece I create is like a journey in itself, infused with beauty, heart, and meaning.
