Paper Sculpture

Welcome! I'm Wendy Bale,

a visual artist in Jamestown, New York.

My passion is paper.

I make nature-themed paper sculptures and paper cuts. I'm a member of the Guild of American Papercutters.

I'm excited to offer my latest body of work called LifeSlice now available through my website. (See highlights below) 

You can also find a selection of my work at Painted Finch Gallery

in Corry, PA and Chautauqua Art Gallery in Jamestown, NY.


The leap from paper sculpture to ceramic sculpture has been rewarding over this past year. Working fully three dimensionally and with the foibles of firings and the chemistry of glazes has been an exciting challenge.


Coinciding with my current obsession with fungi, the resulting Mushroom Menagerie was born. The collection continues to grow.

Pearl City Clay House

Jan12-Feb. 24.

I enjoy sharing the paper and mixed media techniques I've learned and have developed a series of adult workshops. 

My workshops are available for live audiences or online via Zoom. Select samples of past workshops are on my YouTube Channel.


If you are interested in hosting a workshop, or have a custom subject you would like to collaborate with me on, I may be able to help. If you would like to be notified of upcoming workshops, please subscribe to SNIPPETS where my VIPs always are the first to know!

My art career began in my twenties with pen and ink drawing for a living. Drawing is the root of all the artwork I do and over the years I have explored many fascinating mediums.

Current available work includes silverpoint and charcoal.


I truly have a love affair with charcoal —both traditional and liquid versions. This large scale piece shown behind me here is "Mead Island Queen". It is  available through Painted Finch Art Gallery in Corry, PA.

 DM me for information.

Current Exhibition!

Wood Wide Web opened January 12 to an enthusiastic crowd at Pearl City Clay House Gallery. We had many nerdy discussions about mushrooms and nature and everyone was excited to finally see Miles' Through the Roots installation. (See the photos here) I was happy to reveal the spore prints and my Fairy Ring, the newest addition to the Mushroom Menagerie. Watching people play with the UV flashlights on the interactive art was a highlight for me.


If you're in the Western NY area, please stop in to see this unique installation. “Wood Wide Web” will be on display through Feb. 24 at Pearl City Clay House 


If you're unable to look in person, check out this page here on my website, which includes a free PDF to download about the Mushroom Menagerie.
