WENDY HOUSTON was born in Dunbarton in 1957. She has always been interested in drawing and painting and considered going to art school aged eighteen but decided to follow a career in the NHS. While working in Glasgow, she began to attend evening classes at Glasgow School of Art and her life took a very different turn. She was encouraged to prepare a portfolio and apply for entry to art school. Being rather diffident, she was surprised and delighted to be accepted as a full time student in 1985.
She graduated BA (Hons) Fine Art in 1989 and has never regretted her change of career. She has taken part in many exhibitions since graduating and she now paints full time. Wendy paints mainly in oils and sometimes acrylics on board. She enjoys the rich fluidity of oils and the texture and consistency of the paint. She moved to Milnathort in 1996 and has been greatly inspired by the local landscape of Kinrossshire and Fife.
