 The Wendy Parkyn Studio Gallery

(approx 2 miles from Wadebridge on the B3314 just before the turning to Rock) is a working studio and permanent exhibition of my work as a landscape painter.  Among the current activities are  demonstrations/workshops by myself and other artists in a variety of media and subjects, not forgetting plein air painting days in the summer.

 See local press and this website for further details.


I look forward to seeing you – pop in for a cuppa and a chat.




I was born in 1959 and educated in Jersey.  It was there I began my career as a painter, hand painting pottery and selling landscapes through local galleries. I am completely self-taught and prefer to work outdoors whenever possible.


 On moving to Cornwall in 1990 I concentrated on painting watercolour seascapes, and being a dog lover - animal portraits in oils and acrylics. On acquiring the necessary teaching qualifications, I taught watercolour painting for many years through the Adult Education service.


I have recently been experimenting with cubism, examples of which can be seen below and in Gallery 1.

I work in watercolours, oils, acrylic, pastels and mixed media. I do demonstrations and workshops for local Art Groups and Art Societies, locally and further afield. I hold a regular class in Nantstallon on a Tuesday afternoon 2-5pm, and private lessons are available in The Studio Gallery on request, at times to suit.

Apart from The Wendy Parkyn Studio Gallery my work can be seen at The Bideford and Westward Ho! Art Society where I regularly exhibit.  I am a member of the Plymouth Watercolour Society.

I recently exhibited in the Victoria Art Gallery in Bath, with the Bath Society of Artists.

To view a greater selection of my work, please go to The Gallery tab on this website.  All my art work is original.  I do not produce prints of my pictures.

If you are interested in any of my pictures or would like to join one of my classes you can contact me on 07732 028609.  Email parkynwendy@gmail.com
