Artist Bio

Wendy Greaves is a textile artist and teacher, currently based at her home in Rutland but in the process of moving to North Devon. She explores and teaches using a range of textile processes, including embroidery (both hand and machine), resist, print, fabric manipulation and paint. She is never without her camera or sketchbook (and recently her Pomsky, Tallulah), collecting inspiration on her journeys.

Wendy was born in Liverpool and gained a BA (Hons.) Structural Textiles (1990) and a PGCE in Art & Design (1991) from Leicester DeMontfort University. She has taught Textiles, Costume and Fine Art at Oakham School since 1991, but 2022 will be her last year in Rutland as she takes time to produce more of her own artwork. Wendy exhibits regularly and is looking forward to promoting her work in Devon and Cornwall.

Her recent exhibition entitled “Unravelled Journeys” is being held at the Wheel House Gallery, Oakham, Rutland from 17th January – 7th March 2022 and showcases thirty years of her work. .
