Wendy Brewer

I have been working in clay and various art mediums for much of my life.
In 1998 I discovered mosaics and have found the limitless possibilities within the process delightful. I love to play and experiment with materials, learn new techniques, and to continually grow and expand artistically.

Drawing on my experience as an artist and my background in Spiritual Psychology, I value the creative process as a vehicle for healing and connecting with self and others.
I enjoy facilitating stimulating and inspiring mixed-media workshops that promote self-discovery and awareness through creative expression.Some of my most meaningful experiences have been working in hospital based Healing Art programs, providing healing art opportunities to patients, their families, and hospital staff.

Whether I am creating art in my studio, teaching in Children’s art programs, or bringing art classes to seniors in assisted living communities, I receive immense joy and much gratification immersing myself in the arts and contributing to the well-being of others.

Currently I live in Santa Barbara and primarily work in my home studio.
My mosaics are exhibited in galleries and art museums here in Santa Barbara and along the West Coast.

Artist Statement:

I have always felt most at home and connected to my heart when I am in nature, or immersed in the creative process.
The beauty of the natural world nourishes my spirit and feeds my soul.
Engaging in creative expression and exploration feels restorative and healing.
The process always takes me out of my head and into my heart.
Most of my mosaics are like mixed-media collages. I enjoy creating unique pieces out of clay and sculptural material to include in the overall mosaic.
Incorporating poems, quotes, and affirming words bring elements of depth and meaning into my pieces.
Every piece I create feels like a journey in itself, infused with beauty, heart, and meaning.
