About Jan Wendt

Learn more about Jan Wendt from Spokane, WA - United States.








I'm a Self-taught artist. I like to travel, and see new and inspiring places. I love trees, I also love the desert sunsets. The artist Georgia O'Keefe has been a great inspiration to me, I lived a good part of my youth in the southwest. I respect people and cultures that respect the Earth and Life. I'm about versatility, recycling to upcycling. It's in my nature to be creative. When I was kid I lived in a very small town and went to an elementary/junior high school where the classes were double up, 1st and 2nd graders in one room, 3rd and 4th in another and so on. We had a cafeteria/music room/gym but we had no library. What we did have was the Book Mobile that came once a month to the school. I use to check out every book I could get my hands involving drawing ,painting, anything to do with creating or making beautiful things. One day while daydreaming I remembered when I was a youth a puppet kit, given as a gift, that used papier mache. I rediscovered papier mache all over again and love it. Over the years people have commented on my artwork and have said I should sell it. So, that is the reason for creating my shop. You can view my papier mache art at: or on Facebook at: FAVORITE MATERIALS Acrylics, paper, canvas, celluclay, papier mache, wood, collage, natural materials, newpapers, magazines, recycled jewelry, plastics Upcycling is the practice of taking something that is disposable and transforming it into something of greater uses and value. Or upcycle - to reuse ordinary objects to make something extraordinary. Thank You for KEEPING AMERICA BEAUTIFUL
