Wendy MacCordy lives in Westport, CT with her family. Wendy majored in Art History and Fine Arts at Dickinson College and then continued her studies at the Parson School of Design in New York, New York. Originally an oil painter, Wendy switched to watercolor paintings when she had her children and never switched back.

Wendy discovered that she loves the challenge, complexity and unforgiving beauty of the watercolor medium. In particular, Wendy enjoys painting scenes from photographs that she has taken in scenic Connecticut towns and while on vacation with her family. For the last 12 years, Wendy has painted in a studio environment surrounded by fellow artists and has been featured in numerous local shows.

She has received increasing recognition for her work and regularly accepts commissioned assignments. Wendy spends most of her time doing commissioned art work and loves that she can capture a special moment for someone. She loves to put her passion for watercolors into creating heartwarming, meaningful portraits of homes, children, vacation spots, dogs or even beloved boats. Wendy’s paintings are in several private collections and have been donated for live and silent auction fund raisers.

Wendy teaches at many local art schools, including Silvermine Arts Center. She is currently accepting new students for private and semi-private lessons. Please feel free to call Wendy at 203-722-7037 for availability.
