After extensive study, Wendy Collins began her professional art career doing portraits on Cape Cod and at Little Bay Beach Hotel on St. Maarten in the 1970's. She was elected to membership in the Pastel Society of America and the Salmagundi Club in New York.
Wendy Collins now lives a quiet life and paints as an American "Ex-pat" on the island of St. Eustatius in the Dutch Caribbean. She is also active on the Board of the St. Eustatius Historical Fd.
In 1993, her work was included in the three-year Carib Art Traveling Exhibition. She had three one-woman shows on the island of Saba's Breadfruit Gallery, and has taught there. Reproductions of her work can be purchased at the St. Eustatius Tourist Office and The Gallery on the Bay on St. Eustatius, N.A., and at New London Gallery, New London, N.H. in the USA. Recently, over 100 people attended the opening of her exhibition at the St. Eustatius Tourist Office. Sales were brisk.
Her paintings are in many collections in the US, the Caribbean, and in Europe.
