Wendy Pabich is an empress of adventure, guided by passion and awe on a journey of self-exploration and expression, worldly voyages, and community service. As a water lover, she has led graduate students to the wilds of Patagonia to help protect some of the world’s greatest unfettered rivers and applied her science and policy skills to making her local world a better place. She has taught wilderness skills and sustainability in the Himalaya, floated icy rivers in Alaska, navigated the length of the Grand Canyon, skied endless powder glades, and been helicoptered out of the Northern Ice Fields of Patagonia in the wake of a geologic-scale glacial lake outburst flood. Wendy has been practicing yoga for decades and trained as a yoga teacher in the Sacred Valley of Peru. She holds a PhD in Water Resources and an MS in Environmental Policy and Planning from MIT, an MS in Coastal Geology from Duke University, and a BA in Geography from Dartmouth College. Her paintings are deeply informed by these experiences.
Of her art Wendy says, “Making art is a magical vehicle for full expression, integration and connection. I continue to push my creative boundaries with ever-more bold use of color and form. My paintings are colorful interpretations of the energy and iconic beauty of the West. My goal is to bring that sense of warmth, peace, and connection to the homes and work spaces of my clients."
