Trish Wend is an award-winning representational artist, working in oils to create still life and landscape paintings. Her work has been described as rich, classic and radiant. She paints directly from life in her studio in Ridgefield, CT.

She often gravitates toward an old-master style, and employs Chiaroscuro, the journey of light as it emerges from the shadows, and alla prima, painting wet into wet. She is inspired by so many things… cool, atmospheric light cascading onto a shelf, the gesture of an impudent flower, or the glow transmitted by a lemon or a peach.

Trish has studied with Gregg Kreutz at the Art Students League of New York and at the Palette & Chisel Academy in Chicago, IL. Her paintings have been in local juried shows and nationally, with the Oil Painters of America, American Women Artists, National Oil and Acrylic Painters’ Society, and American Artists Professional League, where she is an elected member.

“I try to capture the mood in the scene, whether it’s drama, energy or serenity, and not just paint what I see. I want to leave you my impression of the experience and the joy that comes from looking at colors that glow.”
