The month of August will see Wendy Donellan's "Colour Source" exhibition gracing the walls at Haven Espresso in Stafford Heights. Wendy has just returned from exhibiting in France, where she regularly vists and exhibits. Beginning to paint in 2011, this artists' works caught the eye of local, national and international buyers immediately and her pieces found a ready market in the French resort town of Annecy .

Wendy takes her inspiration from a childhood in Canberra, Brisbane and surrounds. She is also influenced by world travel, Impressionist and Post Impressionist painters. Her style has been described as "Sergeant Peppers meets the French Masters for a picnic."

In July 2013 Wendy left her corporate public relations job and began pursuing art as a fulltime practice. She travelled to visit her brother's family in France in October 2013 and instantly found a market for her work. Her exhibition "The Art of Wendy Donellan In France" (June and July 2014) was a sell-out success and saw her works sold to Swiss and French art collectors as well as Australian online buyers.

Her popular works are known for their vibrant colours and impressionist style and can be seen in business establishments and homes across Australia and with European collectors in France and Switzerland.
