ngWendy Ng

pinkred_smallWendy Ng is an Artist, an Educator and Owner the Bowstring Art Studio. In her younger days, art was an avocation, science a vocation. As she matures, her artistic pursuits begin to assume a more even footing with science and education; one informs the other.

Wendy’s varied life experiences all influence her work. Her eye for color and multicultural designs has been honed by her early fine arts training in Chinese water colors, calligraphy, stone seal carving, various western arts media and her later efforts in graphic design. She is currently fascinated by wax-resist geometric egg designs that need a steady hand and precision.

equilibrium_smallShe loves the challenge of converting two-dimensional designs to three-dimensional ones. She often incorporates traditional Ukrainian symbols, as well as elements from Islamic mosaics, Japanese woodblocks, Matisse paper cuts, nature and Fibonacci patterns, and Escher-like geometric optical illusions into her designs.
traditional_smallHer Bowstring Art Studio name was conferred by her Chinese art teacher who wanted it as a reminder that a bowstring is useless until it is taut. Wendy would like to heed his admonition and stay actively learning and steadily practicing. Her creative work will evolve with experiences gained along her many life paths.  The creative process is meditative to Wendy, and the product is a reflection of her interests in both the arts and sciences, and a confluence of eastern and western cultures.  Wendy is a Hong Kong-born resident of Elkridge, MD. She is married and has two grown sons.
