Born 6 weeks early ,Wendy Edelson spent her first couple years in New York, then moved with her parents to California. It was during that trip. in the back of the family station wagon, with the country speeding past the windows, that she began to draw, and draw…..and draw and hasn’t stopped yet.
Wendy , a self taught artist, moved back to New York at the age of 16, eager to begin her professional career and began making the rounds of publishers and advertising agencies. After several years she moved further North up to Vermont, where she spent most of her adult life illustrating children’s books and creating art for packaging, posters, advertising, collectibles and grown up books.
She now lives on Bainbridge Island and has recently begun licensing her images for all sorts of products and is currently busy creating fabric collections., while continuing to illustrate children’s books.
Through all of life’s experiences, one thing has remained constant, her forever gratitude to the One who has so generously allowed her to be a vessel through which the beauty of His Creation can flow.
She has managed to steal just enough time away from her drawing board occasionally to travel the world and has learned how to whip up a mean Puttanesca sauce and bake biscotti , grow scented flower gardens and heirloom vegetables, learn to dance, be happy, write a children’s book, get married and have a son , love a Corgi and a fluffy gray cat....and the fun’s just begun!
