Wendy Yeo is a Hong Kong born painter who graduated from the Slade School of Fine Art, University of London. She is an elected member of the Royal Watercolour Society of Wales whose patron is the HRH The Prince of Wales, who is also a member. Wendy has been awarded various prizes including: Slade Summer Competition (First Prize); Young Contemporaries (First Prize); the Boise Travelling Scholarship; the Wilson Steer landscape prize (First Prize) and a Travelling Scholarship to Italy and France where she attended Atelier 17 (Etching Studio) in Paris. Wendy has exhibited widely throughout the UK and overseas, including: Hong Kong, New York, California, Istanbul, Kuwait and Paris. She had a two-person show with John Piper and two one-person shows at the Ashmolean Museum, Oxford. In 2015 Wendy had two paintings in an exhibition at the Ashmolean, entitled “From Palace to Studio: Chinese Women Painters from 1900 to the Present”. Her paintings are in many private and public collections, including the Ashmolean Museum; Wolfson College, Oxford; UCL Art Museum; the Slade School Collection; The British Library; Hong Kong Museum, and in the Private Collections of John Piper and Professor Michael Sullivan. "Cityscapes have interested me a lot, particularly cities by water such as New York, Hong Kong, Venice, Istanbul and London; also the colour of buildings, their reflections in water, and various changes of light through the day," says Wendy. "Apart from that I am even more involved with natural forms, e.g. plants, trees, rocks, sea, and water in lakes and waterfalls, portraying form with movement and space and all the natural energy of nature. The media I use are watercolour and also acrylic on canvas. Having been born in Hong Kong and graduated from the Slade School, I like to exploit the Chinese traditional use of the brush and the Oriental use of space mixed with a Western individual interpretation of form, light and colour."
