Wendeline Simpson-Matson is a painter living in Tulsa, Oklahoma. I had the privilege of attending undergrad with her and she has to be one of the most sweetly spirited individuals I have ever met. I think you can easily see this in her artwork. I've always admired her still-life compositions and continually pine over her bicycle and fan paintings. Her paintings are animated by happy colors and impasto, her peculiar drawing style, and exposed layers of composition. She accomplishes a mood of nostalgia that is never simply ornamental or shallow, unlike so many still-lives overdone by artists these days. See more of Wendy's incredible work on her website www.wendeline.com. She is also represented here, here and here!
