Wendy Barratt is an artist who is fascinated with representing the human – both in portraiture and life drawing. Her portraiture is made primarily in oil paint whereas life drawing becomes an experiment in mostly dry media. She is the winner of Sky Portrait Artist of the Year 2023.

She studied graphic design in Manchester back in the early 80’s and has been working ever since as a designer, until recently when she launched herself as a full-time artist. Throughout her career, she has spent a lot of her spare time in the life room honing her artistic skills as well as passing on her love of drawing and painting onto others through teaching.

Recently she has seen her paintings accepted for the Royal Society of Portrait Painters annual exhibition as well as work being sold to private collectors across the world. Commissions include large portraits which were used as major props for the ITV Crime Drama series The Long Call.
