Wendy Ellertson was born in San Francisco and spent part of her childhood in Chicago and Cleveland. She attributes the years she spent in Chicago wandering through art galleries with her parents, meeting sculptors, painters and weavers and Sunday afternoons at the Art Institute as crucial in her development as an artist. She has been a professional member of the fine craft community in the United States for over forty years, first as a potter, then doll maker, then leather artisan working in fashion, sculpture and books. She exhibits her work at national juried fine craft shows, in museums and in galleries insides and outside the U.S. An enthusiastic member of the Interstitial Arts Foundation she encourages border crossing art and storytelling in all its varied forms. Her artistic mission: to encourage perspective, creativity, listening to each other’s stories and the appreciation of life as an adventure to be savored. Her website is: www.ellertson
