Wendy Given is an American artist living and working in Portland, Oregon. With a production of vivid, uncanny contemporary photography, sculpture and drawing, her practice stems from a profound interest guided by nature, myth and magic. Wendy's visual craft conveys an intense yearning to honor and utilize our inherent awareness—to regain the unspoken understanding of the fact that we are all, and always will be (as humans), integral to and dependent on the natural world. Wendy studied fine art and was trained in painting, printmaking, photography and sculpture during her BFA undergraduate work at Atlanta College of Art in Atlanta, Georgia. She received her MFA from Otis College of Art and Design in Los Angeles, California. She has exhibited internationally and is represented by whitespace in Atlanta, Georgia. wendygiven.com
