Wendy Hollender designed textiles for more than 20 years, and through her work developing floral designs for clients such as Wedgwood and Westpoint Stevens, she became fascinated with plants and was inspired to become a full-time botanical artist and illustrator. Current clients include Coty Inc.; the Riverside Park Fund, New York; the Morven Garden and Museum, Princeton, New Jersey; the Nantucket Conservation Foundation, Massachusetts; and the New York Botanical Garden. Wendy is a graduate of the Rhode Island School of Design and received a certificate in botanical illustration from the New York Botanical Garden, where she now teaches botanical art and illustration. Her work has been widely exhibited in both group and solo shows, including one at the Horticultural Society of New York in 2003. She is a member of the American Society of Botanical Artists, the Guild of Natural Science Illustrators, and the Brooklyn Botanic Garden Florilegium Society.
