Wendy Bilas is a contemporary impressionist painter. Her paintings are rendered with loose, expressive brushwork and a focus on the effects of light. Wendy's passion for the natural world is clear as she transforms familiar vistas and images into bold interpretations of color, rhythm, and emotion. While inspired by classic impressionists, Wendy uses her own sense of composition and calculated brushstroke to give her work a simplicity and a soulfulness all its own.
Raised in Western Maryland, Wendy has degrees from Duke and Wake Forest and has been painting professionally since 2002. She was recognized as an Art with Heart Emerging Artist in North Carolina and has been honored in juried shows throughout the Southeast. She works out of her studio in Charlotte, NC, where she lives with her husband, ESPN basketball analyst Jay Bilas. Her work is available at Sozo Gallery and at charity art auctions and events across the country.
