I have a love affair with

charcoal —using both traditional and liquid mediums.

This piece, "Mead Island Queen" was part of Riparian Zone | Up & Down the Riverbank, at the Crary Art Gallery this past July. Now, I am getting back into the studio to continue the story.

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 Paper Cutters.

You can see this large-scale wood duck at Painted Finch Gallery in Corry PA. And select smaller works at Chautauqua Art Gallery in Lakewood, NY.

November Nitram Ad.jpg

Nitram Charcoal featured my work in their full-page ad in this UK magazine!

I got a kick out of having work from our July show, Riparian Zone be featured in an ad that was seen across the pond! It ran inside front cover on beautiful paper and included a link to a video demo I made using their product. 

I've been using their product a lot lately, working on my new series... love getting messy in the charcoal studio! Sign up at the bottom of the page for Early Bird access to Little Birds.
