While doing post baccalaureate work at Alverno College Wendy focused on paper cutting techniques spanning the globe and time.  As she snipped her way from Wycinanki to Papel Picado she fell in love with bright colors, the relationship between positive and negative and the satisfaction of scissors. Shortly after she landed a teaching position at a bilingual school on the south side of Milwaukee. There she worked to honor the heritage of the population she served through expression of youth produced art mimicking the styles of Latin American artists and folk craftspersons. As Wendy grows as a public school educator in multiple disciplines she is increasingly certain that use of tools, understanding patterns, spatial math and pulling a product from mind’s eye to fruition are crucial skills to instill in young minds.
