Wendy Sharpe is acclaimed as one of Australia’s most significant and awarded artists. She has won the Archibald Prize, the Portia Geach Memorial Prize (twice) and the Sulman prize (judged by Albert Tucker). She has received major commissions including Australian Official Artist to East Timor, the first woman painter since World War II.

Wendy is known for her strong figurative paintings, her use of narrative and the sensuous use of paint. She is the quintessential romantic painter, uncompromising, dedicated, and unconcerned by fad and fashion. Her work addresses universal human issues such as relationships and the human condition.
