About Artist

  • Wendy Li-Bertrams encountered Riverside Plein Air Group in 2013, since then painting on location has become a major part of her art practice.
  • Wendy has enjoyed painting and drawing from a young age. She likes the translucence and spontaneity of watercolor, and oil painting for the rich color and powerful visual impact.
  • Wendy worked as an art instructor in drawing class at Riverside Chinese School in CA for three years (2009-2011).
  • Wendy believes her passion and creative imagination are the driving force for her growth. You will recognize the images and style of the artworks she creates, realistic but loose yet semi-abstract, bold brush but also with a delicate application.
