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.

This large-scale wood duck recently sold through Painted Finch Gallery

in Corry PA.

I'm currently putting together a new body of work for my cut paper show this fall at The Copper Shop Gallery on the Roycroft Campus in East Aurora, New York.

I have a love affair with

charcoal —using both traditional and liquid mediums.

This large scale piece shown behind me here is "Mead Island Queen". It is  available through Chautauqua Art Gallery in Jamestown, New York along with select smaller works.

There's always something new happening in my busy art studio. Follow me on social for behind-the-scenes updates.
