My name is Wendy Britton I am a local Sunshine Coast practicing ceramic artist. Living at Cooroibah the natural surroundings of bush land and an abundance of wildlife is the inspiration for my enthusiasm and creativity for my art.
I completed my Diploma in Visual Arts/Ceramics at Sunshine Coast Tafe to further my knowledge in ceramics at which I won the U3A Prize. This also gave me the opportunity to showcase my work at the Emerge 2009 Exhibition.
I have exhibited in a number of group shows over the last 5 years and have held a Solo exhibition. I have also entered a number of competitions with some success.
While at Tafe I received a Highly Commended in the Tafe Aspects Awards which meant that my Cooktown Orchid Bowl and Vase were selected for the Queensland Government Corporate Catalogue from which gifts are selected for overseas dignatories.
