Contact Wendy Munroe


Since 1984, Wendy Munroe, has lived on South Pender Island in the Canadian Gulf Islands, where the beauty of the natural world provides never ending subject matter for her paintings. Most of the images are familiar - sea, garden and landscapes. Frequent travels also inspire and produce images from distant lands. A strong sense of design and love of colour is apparent in each of Wendy’s pieces - joyful pictures evidencing a joyous life.

Wendy Munroe was born in New Westminster, B.C. She was educated at the University of British Columbia, Douglas College (Visual Arts) and University of Victoria (History in Art). She has also participated in many painting, drawing, photography and sculpture workshops. At Douglas College she received a good grounding in the study and practice of the visual arts but her painting technique is mainly self-taught. She finds acrylic paint the best medium for her intuitive and energetic approach.

Wendy Munroe's work is found in collections throughout North America. She exhibits her paintings most often in her own studio and gallery on South Pender Island. Her work can be seen each year on Easter Sunday during the South Pender Art Walk and each July at the Annual Outdoor Show “Art Off the Fence”. She is also a frequent exhibitor at Talisman Books and Gallery on Pender Island and at group shows sponsored by the Trincomali Arts Council.
