Welcome to Blends and Friends. We are Wendy Todd and Pauline Nolan, good ‘FRIENDS’ who come together on a regular basis to exhibit our work, offering ‘BLENDS’ of embellished textile creations and vibrant acrylic artwork.
Although we work entirely independently we find that our methods are very similar. Often we begin our pieces using random colour combinations and marks, whether it’s Wendy with her exquisite silk fabrics or Pauline with paint/ink combinations. Each piece evolves through creative flow, rather than from a rigid plan, and we are both fond of finding hidden images within our own work, which we enhance and develop, adding texture and depth.
As a result each painting or fabrication has its own unique identity to bring to exhibitions, whilst harmonizing and complementing its surroundings.
