Meet Wendy Brightbill
I deeply believe that you paint what you need the most in your life. I consider myself a story teller; only I use color instead of words. I believe you can create the life you want and change your story. For me that meant painting the color and joy back into my life after a car accident. It took a brain injury for me to pick up a paint brush, and I am so happy that I did. I am ever grateful for what a car accident brought into my life and this crazy beautiful journey I am on.
I am passionate about making a mess with paint and paper. But I have recently found a love for doodling and digital designing. I LOVE to play with color and follow all the latest trends. I am continually looking for inspiration everywhere and finding ways to incorporate it into my style. I see myself as a lifelong learner, and I am always evolving as an artist.
I believe it’s important to create every day. It’s my joy, my lifeline, my therapy. I hope my art inspires joy in others, because I love what I do.
