Wendy Carlton


Wendy has spent her whole lifetime painting. She initially studied textile design in Nottingham and was among 30 students nationwide who were chosen to take part in a Budding Designers exhibition at the Design Centre in London. As a result of this she was offered a job with a leading design studio designing fabrics which went on to be sold worldwide. Many of Wendy's brightly coloured floral designs were used for swimwear.

Having gained valuable experience Wendy decided to take the brave step to become a freelance greetings card designer as she had always preferred creating one-off images. This decision proved to be correct as Wendy had a successful career for almost 20 years designing greeting cards for all the major companies.
