A native New Yorker, Wanda's passion has always been art, and The Metropolitan Museum of Art her home away from home. She moved to the Kansas City area in 1976 and has since earned a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from the University of Central Missouri in both Commercial Art and Studio Art with concentrations in Illustration and Painting respectively. She also has an Associate of Applied Science degree in Graphic Design.
Wanda enjoys working with oils, pastels and graphite, and while her medium of choice is acrylics, she is also exploring the world of texture and mixed media from molding paste to dripping tar in her contemporary pieces. She has received several awards including Best of Show and Jurorís Choice at various venues.
The artist currently resides in Raymore, Missouri with her husband and two pets.
