     Wendy Chidester lives in Salt Lake City, Utah with her husband, three children and a beagle. She studied art at the University of Utah, graduating with a BFA in 1988. More recently she has been a resident artist at the Helper Workshops in Helper, Utah, with David Dornan and Paul Davis.
     
She says the following about her still life paintings: “I love to wander through antique shops and junk yards looking for old, worn objects to inspire me to paint. Things that most people pass by as junk make great subject matter for my paintings. These objects become the focal point of much of my artwork. I try to bring new life to old objects and evoke memories of days past in each painting. I enjoy making the painting surface as rich and as interesting as the objects themselves, giving each painting a feeling of age, depth, and beauty.”
