Wendy calls her artwork Gelastic Art. The word “Gelastic” comes from an out of use word Gell found in a one hundred year old dictionary when looking up the definition of her own name, meaning “capable of producing laughter; risible; healing by laughter.” A Gelasin is the dimple on the cheek produced by smiling. Jewels and rhinestones, brightly colored Swarovski Austrian crystals, small antique toys and objects, fabric, cherubs and religious artifacts, Wendy’s old jewelry, inlaid bits of Pop Culture or the playful icons of retro-Americana. Some start as oil paintings and become encrusted as the jewelry and art “Gell” into something brand new. All Wendy’s gelastic art and oil paintings will be signed before shipping.
