Sorry for your lost may the God who gives comfort and Strength be with the family at this time of mourning.


I was so sad to find that Sister Wendy passed away. She was a delight, and brought Art to life for us ordinary folk. Her memory will live on as long as there are curious minds to watch her teachings.

Dear Sister Wendy,
Thank you for being a fantastic art educator! I took such delight with your televised series; your choice of art and such wonderful information you provided. Not only were you informative, you were entertaining and brilliant. You were a beautiful example of someone following their passion and sharing it.

I loved seeing you on BBC. May God bless you.
